The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is an international open data research infrastructure, funded by governments. It allows anyone, anywhere to access primary data about all types of life on Earth, shared via the global portal and through national and thematic portals. GBIF operates through a network of Participant Nodes which coordinate the biodiversity information facilitation of participant countries and organizations. The data are published by many institutions from around the world. By encouraging and helping institutions to publish data according to common standards, GBIF enables research that could previously not be performed, and informs better decisions to conserve and sustainably use the biological resources of the planet.

## R-package rgbif (rOPenSci)
key <- name_backbone(name="Hepatica nobilis", kingdom="Plantae")$speciesKey
sp <- occ_search(taxonKey=key, return="data", hasCoordinate=TRUE, limit=1000)
