The Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) aims to increase awareness and understanding of living nature by gathering, generating and sharing knowledge in an open, freely accessible and trusted digital resource.

Our knowledge of the many life-forms on Earth – of animals, plants, fungi, protists and bacteria – is scattered around the world in books, journals, databases, websites, specimen collections; and in the minds of people everywhere. Imagine what it would mean if this information could be gathered together and made available to everyone – anywhere – at a moment's notice.

Content on the Encyclopedia of Life (EoL) is either in the public domain,[1] or some Creative Commons license[2]preferably CC-BY.

The project is translated at translatewiki.net.
