Retrieve occurrences of a taxon from GBIF using its scientific name

This service retrieves occurrences of a taxon from GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility). It takes as input a taxon name provided using property schema:name. The reason for using schema:name instead of e.g. dwc:scientificName is that the searched name may be accepted or a synonym. Hence the schema:name property that makes no assumption as to the nature of the name.

Occurrences are represented according to the Darwin-SW specification.
