The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) provides tools to enable users of biodiversity information to find, access, combine and visualise data on Australian plants and animals; these have been made available from <http://ala.org.au/>. ALA4R provides a subset of the tools to be directly used within R. It enables the R community to directly access data and resources hosted by the ALA. Our goal is to enable outputs (e.g. observations of species) to be queried and output in a range of standard formats.
