Encyclopedia of Life
This past month a new and ambitious website was launched with the objective of being a repository of knowledge of life on earth. The self stated description from the EOL website " Comprehensive, collaborative, ever-growing, and personalized, the Encyclopedia of Life is an ecosystem of websites that makes all key information about all life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world." Much to my surprise a good part of the website is populated with information on fish and sea life. This I came to find out is largely due to a partnership with fishbase, another excellent source of information. Encyclopedia of Life is much more ambitious and promises to be content and media rich. Whether you are a scientist, a student, or just curious I recommend taking a look.
