earthlife

The earthlife package provides a programmatic interface to the EarthLife Consorium's combined API for the Neotoma Paleoecological Database and the Paleobiology Database. The combined API provides access to biological records obtained from fossil samples spanning from the present to the origin of life on earth.

Development

We welcome contributions from any individual, whether code, documentation, or issue tracking. All participants are expected to follow the code of conduct for this project.

  • Simon Goring - University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Geography

Example

Find all fossil records for the genus Canis and include all lower taxa (all species).

# Find all Canis related fossils:
all_canis <- get_by_taxon("Canis", lower = TRUE)
