Hi Eduardo,

I hope you are well.  I'm not sure I understand your comment I'm afraid.
Taxonomic filters have been working in GBIF since 2007 and they can be combined with any other filters.  They are the most used search filters, which all species pages link to.

Plants:  http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?TAXON_KEY=6  or http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?TAXON_KEY=6
Animals: http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?TAXON_KEY=1  or http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/search?TAXON_KEY=1

I presume you mean something else though - can you please explain and I'll try and help?

Congrats folks! Great job!

Still no way to separate plants of animals, or I missing something?

Hi folks,

I am very happy to let you know that a new release of GBIF.org went online at lunchtime today with the following enhancements:

Occurrence search (http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search):

  *   New locality based filters:
     *   locality, province/state and water body
     *   These are not interpreted terms, but allow search based on what publishers state
     *   http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?STATE_PROVINCE=California
     *   http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?WATER_BODY=AMAZONAS+BASIN%2C+RIO+JURUA
  *   A new organismID filter
     *   http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?ORGANISM_ID=100
  *   Publishing protocol filter
     *   http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?PROTOCOL=TAPIR
  *   License filter and facet:
     *   http://www.gbif.org/occurrence/search?license=CC_BY_4_0
  *   The occurrence API supports all the filters mentioned above with the addition of also allowing search by publishing organisation

Occurrence downloads:

  *   The rights.txt file: has been changed to list all the licenses of datasets included in that download.
  *   DwC-A based downloads and the Datacite metada (DOIs) use the most restrictive license of the datasets included in the download defaulting to CC-BY.
  *   The CSV downloads contain a new column 'License'.

The Dataset search page now supports faceted navigation by license: http://www.gbif.org/dataset/search?license=CC_BY_4_0

In the release, we have temporarily broken the "repatriation" filter which is being re-enabled now, and will be online again tomorrow.  Sorry about this partial outage of that search term.

Many thanks,
