Details

Summarize the count of media records in iDigBio according to unique values in the fields passed. This operates similarly to a SELECT DISTINCT count( field_name) query in SQL. When multiple fields are passed, the summaries are nested eg fields=c("country", "genus") would result in counting the top 10 genera in each of the top 10 countries for a total of 100 counts.

Value

nested list of field values with counts of media records
