[API-users] Getting number of records for a given scientific name

Dear ALL,

Is there a way to retrieve the number of georeferenced records for a given
scientific name using a GBIF API call?

I tried something like "
http://api.gbif.org/v1/occurrence/count?ScientificName=Vicia+faba" but it
of course didn't work.

I realize this is a rather silly question, but most of the time I only
access the GBIF API using Python (via pygibf) or R (via rgbif), and
therefore I'm not used to direct calls to the API (what a shame!).

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide?

Best regards,

Dr. Mauro J. Cavalcanti
