The Encyclopedia of Life

Ultimately, the Encyclopedia will serve as an online reference source and database for every one of the 1.8 million species that are named and known on this planet, as well as all those later discovered and described. Encyclopedia of Life will be used as both a teaching and a learning tool, helping scientists, educators, students, and the community at large gain a better understanding of this planet and all who inhabit it.
Also check out their demonstration pages. This initiative was partly made possible by E.O. Wilsons wish at the 2007 TED conference.
