The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), which offers information on nearly 700,000 species, has launched a redesigned and expanded website. The site seeks to increase awareness and understanding of living nature by gathering, generating, and sharing knowledge in an open, freely accessible and trusted digital resource.
EOL is supported by a community of over 700 curators responsible for reviewing and approving content, and by staff at contributing institutions around the world. The new version offers interfaces in English, Arabic, and Spanish. MacArthur is a founding supporter of EOL.
