The service exposes a standard taxonomy of marine animal species integrated with Global Species Databases (GSD). It gives access to accurate scientific and common names, alternate names and synonyms, and full classification information for each species. Possible applications include replacing unaccepted names with accepted ones for ocean-dwelling animals, discovering scientific names for common or vernacular names, and listing related species.
Methods support retrieving the scientific name, common names, and synonymous names for a particular ocean animal. Also available are classification structure and related animal names for a named animal.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
