The encyclopedia of Life that I wrote about some time ago, has just brought it’s first 30,000 pages online. The goal of the project which is slated to last 10 years is to catalog the entire earths known living species, all 1.8 million. Though 30,000 pages are now up only a handful a fully complete and approved by scientists, the rest serving as placeholders that haven’t been authenticated by scientists yet. You can see the list of exemplar pages as they call them, that are fully approved, here. Later on this year the site will be opened to the public for contributing different materials to be incorporated into the project.
