ALA4R is deprecated and will be removed from CRAN at the end of 2021. The package to replace ALA4R,
galah, is now available on CRAN.
galah provides an improved interface to ALA data, while providing the same core functionality as ALA4R. For an introduction to
galah, visit the GitHub page.
The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) provides tools to enable users of biodiversity information to find, access, combine and visualise data on Australian plants and animals; these have been made available from https://www.ala.org.au/. Here we provide a subset of the tools to be directly used within R.
ALA4R enables the R community to directly access data and resources hosted by the ALA.
