  I'm development a tool for data quality and I'm using the GBIF API to
validate scientific names.
  I want to know if you have a documentation about the JSON response. I
have any questions:
  1- What the possibles values to matchType attribute?
  2- When the result is exact, always return a single dataset? And when the
result isn't exact, the  attribute "alternatives"  return the datasets that
better matche with the search term?
  3- What kind of URL I should use when the name query has space and
special caracteres, for example, ().,& ?

  Thank you,
