Retrieve the current taxon index

Description

This function downloads the current taxon index across published datasets and returns a formatted taxon table showing the taxonomic hierarchy of each taxon. It requires an internet connection.

Usage

get_taxon_coverage()

Details

Note that the use of "user" defined taxa can lead to some unusual entries. There is nothing to stop a user defining "Gallus gallus" as a "user" taxon with Animalia as a parent taxon.

Value

A data frame containing higher taxon level information for each taxon in the database taxon index. If the API is unavailable, the function returns NULL.
