Science Web Resources

Encyclopedia of Life What is EOL? Welcome to the first release of the Encyclopedia of Life portal. This is the very beginning of our exciting journey to document all species of life on Earth.
Comprehensive, collaborative, ever-growing, and personalized, the Encyclopedia of Life is an ecosystem of websites that makes all key information about all life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. Our goals are to:


Create a constantly evolving encyclopedia that lives on the Internet, with contributions from scientists and amateurs alike. Transform the science of biology, and inspire a new generation of scientists, by aggregating virtually all known data about every living species. Engage a wide audience of schoolchildren, educators, citizen scientists, academics and those who are just curious about Earth's species. Increase our collective understanding of life on Earth, and safeguard the richest possible spectrum of biodiversity. Referenced:
