Description(s):
by David Shorthouse (over 5 years ago)

VASCAN is the Database of Vascular Plants of Canada. It is a comprehensive list of all vascular plants reported in Canada, Greenland (Denmark) and Saint Pierre and Miquelon (France). VASCAN is literature-based, though recent additions are sometimes specimen-based.

The VASCAN API accepts GET and POST requests. The path contains an explicit version and the search resource accepts a parameter q. The value for q can be a scientific name, a vernacular name or a VASCAN taxon identifier (e.g. 861). It may have a single value for GET requests or multiple values (maximum 200) for POST requests, each separated by line breaks, \n. Scientific or vernacular names may optionally be preceded by your local identifier and a pipe, |. GET requests for JSON-based URIs may have an additional callback parameter for JSONP responses.
