Encyclopedia of Life

About:




The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) is an ambitious, even
audacious project to organize and make available via the Internet virtually all
information about life present on Earth. At its heart lies a series of Web
sites—one for each of the approximately 1.8 million known species—that provide
the entry points to this vast array of knowledge. The entry-point for each site
is a species page suitable for the general public, but with several linked
pages aimed at more specialized users. The sites sparkle with text and images
that are enticing to everyone, as well as providing deep links to specific
data.

The EOL dynamically synthesizes biodiversity knowledge about
all known species, including their taxonomy, geographic distribution,
collections, genetics, evolutionary history, morphology, behavior, ecological
relationships, and importance for human well being, and distribute this
information through the Internet. It serves as a primary resource for a wide
audience that includes scientists, natural resource managers, conservationists,
teachers, and students around the world. We believe that the EOL's encompassing
scope and innovation will have a major global impact in facilitating
biodiversity research, conservation, and education.

The EOL
staff is made up of scientists and non-scientists working from museums and
research institutions around the world. We currently have 20 full time
employees, but as this project grows, so will the EOL family.
