The Discover Life website has access to all plants and animals of the world. Go to the gallery and click on a photo of one of the forms of life and get its name and classification, natural history, distribution, abundance, and ecology. Everything from amphibians, to birds, mammals, fish, insects, snails, molds, plants, and more can be viewed. Browse by scientific name if desired. Other features include a list of guides, and resources and lesson plans for teachers.
Our mission is to assemble and share knowledge in order to improve education, health, agriculture, economic development, and conservation throughout the world.
We provide free on-line tools to identify species, share ways to teach and study nature's wonders, report findings, build maps, process images, and contribute to and learn from a growing, interactive encyclopedia of life that now has 1,290,389 species pages.
