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.
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.
