The Earth Life Web is a web site dedicated to supplying you with all the information you want about life on this planet. In short it is an encyclopedia of life on earth.
It is now, and perhaps will always be, 'under construction'. There is a lot of life on planet earth so it will take some time to get it all written, just typing out the names of all the species would take me over 10 years. I have no intention of trying to do that, but even so there is a lot to write, so please be patient.
Apart from a few general pages the site will be broken up into a series of subdomains, each one a complete site in its own right, i.e. /insects/ or /birds/ etc. see below.
To get an overview over the topics of this website you can take a look right here or here and also here.
