More possibilities of GBIF records retrieval in r

Scott Chamberlain posted new interesting examples what you can do with the “rgbif” package in the ropensci suite. See over to his page at github for some excellent demonstrations what is possible with just a few lines of r-code and the vastlast amounts of GBIF data.

GBIF certainly becomes one of the best and easiest to use data sources in many fields of ecology. Although the data coverage for many countries is still underreported, other countries made quite the process for free and easy access to biodiversity information (For instance the majority of the volunteer raised vegetation data provided by the German FloraWeb server is already available in GBIF).
