Retrieve from GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) the classification of a taxon given by its taxon name identifier.

The result is a list of instances of dwc:Taxon, one for each parent of the taxon. Each taxon belonging to the classification comes with the following information: scientific name (dwc:scientificNameID), scientific name (dwc:scientificName), the URL of the taxon Web page (schema:sameAs), taxonomic rank, parent taxon (skos:broader).
Compared to the gbif/getTaxonByID micro-service that provides, together with the taxon information, the names of the taxa corresponding to the major taxonomic ranks (kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus), this service provides the whole classification, including taxa corresponding to secondary ranks (superfamily, subfamily, subgenus, etc.).
