Encyclopedia of Life

On our most recent show, I mentioned the Encyclopedia of Life. What an awesome effort, the first release of a website portal to document all species of life on earth!

"EOL is an unprecedented global effort...  Natural history museums, botanical gardens, other research institutions, and dedicated individuals are working to create the most complete biodiversity database on the web..."

"...an ecosystem of websites that makes all key information about all life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world."

First release or not, the website is an amazing accomplishment. There certainly should be no problem navigating the site, and they provide a video tour and lots of explanation to get you started...

My first wander landed me on the page of the "anole," a little creature I've always loved and  been fascinated with. I was taken to photos, classifications, and all the information I could possibly need or want.

Enjoy the diversity and beauty.

Have a great week!

Don't forget to tune in to Speak Freely, our weekly radio broadcast, and I'll talk to you then!

Your irreverent cohost,
Pamela
