Emerging languages on EOL

Last updated over 2 years ago

In addition to Arabic, Spanish and English, a variety of other languages are represented in EOL content. Biodiversity research is conducted and published in many languages, and new ones are arriving in EOL pages all the time. Some of our international partners, including Plazi and the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) provide us with content in several languages already. Here are some examples.
