The Encyclopedia of Life

The Encyclopedia of Life is a collection of international websites that makes information about life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere. With this website, the developers hope to "create a constantly evolving encyclopedia that lives on the Internet, with contributions from scientists and amateurs alike. To transform the science of biology, and inspire a new generation of scientists, by aggregating all known data about every living species. And ultimately, to increase our collective understanding of life on Earth, and safeguard the richest possible spectrum of biodiversity."
