I would all the gbif taxon data in CSV or another format for a website. Is it available please ?
You can download the GBIF backbone taxonomy as a DwC-Archive: http://rs.gbif.org/datasets/backbone/backbone-current.zip
Or—if you only interested in taxa for which GBIF has known occurrences, you can download a species list from here: https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/download
Thank you but I see in taxon.tsv that there are 6 500 000 of taxa but in your website it is precied that there are 1 500 000 000 taxa ?!
and for your second list I get a 500 error
The backbone currently has ~3.5M accepted names. In addition, there are ~2.1M synonyms plus names with other statuses (see the browser here: https://www.gbif.org/species/search?dataset_key=d7dddbf4-2cf0-4f39-9b2a-bb099caae36c&origin=SOURCE&status=ACCEPTED&advanced=1)
The number of occurrence records, i.e. evidence of a given taxon at a specific time and place, is currently 1.4B (https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?q=)
oh I succeeded to open your second link
why there are only 6 000 000 taxa in the first link and 1 500 000 000 in the second ?
is mysql supports the integration of second simple dataset ?
The first number is NAMES of taxa—the second number is OCCURRENCES of taxa.
Programmatic access is also available through the GBIF API: https://www.gbif.org/developer/species
what are occurences please ?
OK thank you so the 6 000 000 records dataset is enough for me, my server doesn’t has the capacity for the second dataset
