Get distribution data for your species list.

Description

This function downloads distribution data from the FloraWeb-database.

Usage

1
get.dist(x, input = FALSE, output = "list", matrix.res = "TK25")

Arguments

x

A data.frame with one column containing the species names in the format 'genus_epithet'.

input

logical. If TRUE x is treated as the output of check_species, if FALSE x is treated as the input for check_species with level = "species"

output

A character string describing whether the output format should be a "list" or a "matrix".

matrix.res

A character string describing the resolution of the produced matrix, either "TK25" or "quarterTK".

Details

This function applies functions from the get.dist-family on your species list, depending on the value of output. The default value is list.

Value

Output depends on the output value. output = "list" returns a list of one data.frame per taxon, including all information found in the FloraWeb for the particular taxa. output= "matrix" returns a presence/absence matrix for the TK25 plane survey sheets, when matrix.res = "TK25" or the quarter TK25 plane survey sheets, when matrix.res = "quarterTK" including every matching taxon in x.
