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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
