The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) began in 2007 with the bold idea to provide “a webpage for every species.” Now, EOL brings together trusted information from resources across the world such as museums, learned societies, expert scientists, and others into one massive database and a single, easy-to-use online portal at EOL.org .
EOL is expanding to become a global community of collaborators and contributors serving the general public, enthusiastic amateurs, educators, students, and even professional scientists from around the world. Learn about The People of EOL and EOL Governance.
The EOL website is full of text and visual resources, a wellspring of writing prompts ready to go. To learn more, click here.
