What is in EOL?
The Encyclopedia of Life brings together information about all life on Earth—one web page for each species. But EOL is much more than 1.9 million species pages. It's an incredible resource for text, images, video, sounds, maps, classifications and more, all freely available online. And, the true power of EOL comes from its users—users like you—who create Collections, start and join Communities, share their species images and make EOL a vibrant and ever-expanding meeting place for everyone interested in nature. Contact Us to let us know how you are using EOL.
