Biodiversity Illustrations

Last updated over 5 years ago

Scientific illustrations are an important part of scientific communication, highlighting observations and details. Before the age of photography, illustrations were one of the main sources of visualization in science. Each species page on EOL has a link to Biodiversity Heritage Library literature under the "Literature" tab.
