Usage

2
name_suggest(q = NULL, datasetKey = NULL, rank = NULL, fields = NULL,
  start = NULL, limit = 100, curlopts = list())

Arguments

q

(character, required) Simple search parameter. The value for this parameter can be a simple word or a phrase. Wildcards can be added to the simple word parameters only, e.g. q=puma

datasetKey

(character) Filters by the checklist dataset key (a uuid, see examples)

rank

(character) A taxonomic rank. One of class, cultivar, cultivar_group, domain, family, form, genus, informal, infrageneric_name, infraorder, infraspecific_name, infrasubspecific_name, kingdom, order, phylum, section, series, species, strain, subclass, subfamily, subform, subgenus, subkingdom, suborder, subphylum, subsection, subseries, subspecies, subtribe, subvariety, superclass, superfamily, superorder, superphylum, suprageneric_name, tribe, unranked, or variety.

fields

(character) Fields to return in output data.frame (simply prunes columns off)

start

Record number to start at. Default: 0. Use in combination with limit to page through results.

limit

Number of records to return. Default: 100. Maximum: 1000.

curlopts

list of named curl options passed on to HttpClient. see curl_options for curl options
