Get details about a single item from a table

Usage
betydb_record(id, table, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL,
  fmt = NULL, key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL,
  progress = TRUE, ...)

betydb_trait(id, genus = NULL, species = NULL, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL, fmt = "json", key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL, progress = TRUE, ...)

betydb_specie(id, genus = NULL, species = NULL, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL, fmt = "json", key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL, progress = TRUE, ...)

betydb_citation(id, genus = NULL, species = NULL, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL, fmt = "json", key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL, progress = TRUE, ...)

betydb_site(id, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL, fmt = "json", key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL, progress = TRUE, ...)

betydb_experiment(id, api_version = NULL, betyurl = NULL, fmt = "json", key = NULL, user = NULL, pwd = NULL, progress = TRUE, ...)

Arguments
id

(integer) One or more ids for a species, site, variable, etc.

table

(character) Name of the database table with which this ID is associated.

api_version

(character) Which version of the BETY API should we query? One of "v0" or "beta". Default is options("betydb_api_version") if set, otherwise "v0".

betyurl

(string) url to target instance of betydb. Default is options("betydb_url") if set, otherwise "https:/www.betydb.org/"

fmt

(character) Format to return data in, one of json, xml, csv. Only json currently supported.

key

(character) An API key. Use this or user/pwd combo. Save in your .Rprofile file as options(betydb_key = "your40digitkey"). Optional

user, pwd

(character) A user name and password. Use a user/pwd combo or an API key. Save in your .Rprofile file as options(betydb_user = "yournamehere") and options(betydb_pwd = "yourpasswordhere"). Optional

progress

show progress bar? default: TRUE

...

Curl options passed on to GET. Optional

genus

(character) A genus name. Optional

species

(character) A specific epithet. Optional

Details

BETYdb includes a primary home page (betydb.org) focused on bioenergy crops as well as a network of harmonized databases that support and share data among more focused research programs.

For a list of publicly accessible instances of BETYdb and the urls that can be queried, see https://pecan.gitbooks.io/betydb-documentation/content/distributed_betydb.html

This package queries plant traits, phenotypes, biomass yields, and ecosystem functions. It does not currently interface with the workflow and provenance data that support PEcAn Project (pecanproject.org) and TERRA REF (terraref.org) software.

API documentation: https://pecan.gitbooks.io/betydb-data-access/content/API.html API endpoints are here: https://www.betydb.org/api/docs This package currently uses the original 'v0' API by default. To use a newer version, set `api_version`. Newer versions of the API will support database inserts.

Authentication

Defers to use API key first since it's simpler, but if you don't have an API key, you can supply a username and password.

Functions

Singular functions like betydb_trait accept an id and additional parameters, and return a list of variable outputs depending on the inputs.

However, plural functions like betydb_traits accept query parameters, but not ids, and always return a single data.frame.

betydb_search("Search terms", ...) is a convenience wrapper that passes all further arguments to betydb_query(table = "search", search = "Search terms", ...). See there for details on possible arguments.
