    @Katja Schulz: Hello, Sorry I did not get back to you sooner but have been very busy. Thank you for your criticisms of the article - I will review it sometime this week I hope and make corrections and improvements. In the meantime I also posted a comprehensive description of the animal kingdom on that page. I would appreciate if you would have a look and offer criticisms of that one too, if you are not busy doing more important things and have the time, Cheers, Jeff Betz

    Are any of the illustrations from Audobon's Birds of America on EOL? I tried to find some of the more famous ones, like his golden eagle painting, or american flamingo, but couldn't. The images from his book have been digitized and are available at several sites, including the Audobon society website and the University of Pittsburg, but both are copyrighted. Could either of these be added to EOL?

    jeff betz commented on "EOL Curators":

    @jeff betz: Also, is there some way or place for curators to suggest photo collections or libraries that could added to EOL en masse rather than just one photo at a time. For instance the Mutter Medical Museum in Philadelphia has an online photo collection of human specimans, anatomical illustrations, etc. They like EOL also have a flickr page. Could they be invited to just add their flickr images to EOL?

    @Michael Wunderli: Unfortunately a lot of pictures on the web like science photo library are not in the public domain. If you find photos that are not copyrighted (I have done this with photos from NASA for instance or the US geological survey) then download them and add them to the EOL flickr page. They will they get harvested to EOL. Hope this helps.

    @Cyndy Parr: Hello, The images in this and my other files are meant to illustrate the gateway articles that Marie S. wants to put up, and some of which (worms, amphibians, birds) are finished, or mostly finished. The insect one I am still researching.
