Details

VertNet IDs can be a variety of things, some URIs (i.e., with http://...), while others start with urn.

Internally in this function we filter data to darwin core terms only. To see what terms we use, do readLines( system.file("extdata", "simple_dwc_terms.txt", package = "rvertnet")). Get in touch with us if these terms need correcting/are out of date. The terms are from https://github.com/tdwg/dwc/blob/master/dist/simple_dwc_horizontal.csv

Value

A list, with data frame of search results, and list of metadata
