encyclopedia of life

This site gives information about various species in the world

The Learning and Education Group, based at Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, seeks to explore and promote EOL's use in schools and universities and for citizen science. It will also collaborate with "informal education" groups, such as natural history museums and nature centers to show how EOL can extend learning beyond the classroom walls. Citizen scientists are another important partner for EOL, helping to provide species data and information while at the same time reaching out to other interested individuals and groups through the EOL networks.

The Encyclopedia of Life is an unprecedented global partnership between the scientific community and the general public. Our goal is to make freely available to anyone knowledge about all the world’s organisms. Anybody can register as an EOL member and add text, images, videos, comments or tags to EOL pages. Expert curators ensure quality of the core collection by authenticating materials submitted by diverse projects and individual contributors. Together we can make EOL the best, most comprehensive source for biodiversity information
