Encyclopedia Of Life
Click Link above
THE first 30,000 pages of the online Encyclopedia of Life were unveiled overnight as part of an ambitious project to catalogue the 1.8 million species known on Earth.

In an immediate sign of its success, the Internet site www.eol.org was quickly swamped and inaccessible by midday local time.

The encyclopedia, which was launched in May 2007, provides free access to all current knowledge on the planet's biodiversity in a bid to help protect the environment from climate change and human over-exploitation.

It will take about a decade to complete the digital reference book which will eventually contain information on all living species documented over the past 250 years of scientific research.
