This service will return JSON formatted records matching any part of the scientific or vernacular names, synonyms, authority and older common names.
It is case insensitive. The result set is limited to 1000 records.
If the search string contains a space, it will split the query string into a search of genus and specific name only and ignore other search fields.
To restrict to a category add '&cat=37' where for example 37 == fishes (first two characters of a CAAB code) to the url. e.g. to retrieve e https://www.marine.csiro.au/data/services/caab/?cat=37&q=Asymbolus
