Subject: [tdwg-tapir] Requesting available darwin core elements from

Is there a way to request from a tapir data provider which optional elements
of the darwin core schema are actually implemented by the provider in
question. I mean, if I understood correctly only a small subset of the
Darwin Core are required
ctionCode,CatalogNumber,ScientificName). It would be nice to know what
optional elments a given provider implements before formulating a search
request to that provider (for instance, whether information defined in the
IslandGroup element is available).

The metadata response does not provide this information, I think.

Thanks a lot.
