rq

iDigBio record query in nested list format

fields

vector of fields that will be contained in the data.frame, defaults to "all" which is all indexed fields

max_items

limit

Details

Also see idig_search_records for the full examples of all the parameters related to searching iDigBio.

Wraps idig_search to provide defaults specific to searching media records. Using this function instead of idig_search directly is recommened. Record queries and media queries objects are allowed (rq and mq parameters) and media records returned will match the requirements of both.

This function defaults to returning all indexed media record fields.

Value

a data frame
