Project Description

A simple and pythonic client for Gbif Taxon Webservice. Pretty much work in progress. See [Gbif Taxon Webservice API]( for details.


This is the way to use it:

>>> from gbif import Client
>>> c = Client()
>>> taxon = client.get_by(key=5661746)
<Genus Orchid key=5661746 status='unconfirmed'>
>>> taxon.key
>>> taxon.url
>>> taxon.fullname
>>> taxon.status
>>> taxon.primary
>>> # searching by scientific name and rank
[<Genus Cymbidium key=16286243 status=unconfirmed>, <Genus Cymbidium key=16308408 status=unconfirmed>,
