Match taxonomic names to the Open Tree Taxonomy.
tnrs_match_names( names = NULL, context_name = "All life", do_approximate_matching = TRUE, ids = NULL, include_suppressed = FALSE, ... )
taxon names to be queried. Currently limited to 10,000 names for exact matches and 2,500 names for approximate matches (character vector)

A vector of ids to use for identifying names. These will be assigned to each name in the names array. If ids is provided, then ids and names must be identical in length.
Ordinarily, some quasi-taxa, such as incertae sedis buckets and other non-OTUs, are suppressed from TNRS results. If this parameter is true, these quasi-taxa are allowed as possible TNRS results.
additional arguments to customize the API request (see
Accepts one or more taxonomic names and returns information about potential matches for these names to known taxa in the Open Tree Taxonomy.
This service uses taxonomic contexts to disambiguate homonyms and
misspelled names; a context may be specified using the
context_name argument. If no context is specified, then the
context will be inferred (i.e., the shallowest taxonomic context
that contains all unambiguous names in the input). Taxonomic
contexts are uncontested higher taxa that have been selected to
allow limits to be applied to the scope of TNRS searches
(e.g. 'match names only within flowering plants'). Once a context
has been identified (either user-specified or inferred), all taxon
name matches will performed only against taxa within that
context. For a list of available taxonomic contexts, see
A name is considered unambiguous if it is not a synonym and has only one exact match to any taxon name in the entire taxonomy.
Several functions listed in the ‘See also’ section can be used to inspect and manipulate the object generated by this function.
