"Imagine an electronic page for each species of organism on Earth, available everywhere by single access on command." - Edward O. Wilson



The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) is an ambitious 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.
Each site is constantly evolving and features dynamically synthesized content ranging from historical literature and biological descriptions to stunning images, videos and distribution maps. Join us as we explore the richness of Earth’s biodiversity!
