helminthR: Access London Natural History Museum Host-Helminth Record Database

Access to large host-parasite data is often hampered by the availability of data and difficulty in obtaining it in a programmatic way to encourage analyses. 'helminthR' provides a programmatic interface to the London Natural History Museum's host-parasite database, one of the largest host-parasite databases existing currently <http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/scientific-resources/taxonomy-systematics/host-parasites/>. The package allows the user to query by host species, parasite species, and geographic location.
