Education and the Encyclopedia of Life

Our Education pages provide an introduction to how to use the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) and
educational resources for learning about biodiversity.

The Encyclopedia of Life brings together content such as information, multimedia, maps and data about all life on Earth—one web page for each species.
Our tools help you harness and apply the information found on EOL.
