Encyclopedia Of #Life Reaches A Milestone

The Encyclopedia of Life , a free online resource that set out in 2007 to bring together images, videos and scientific information on every species on the planet. Four years later it has now reached 750,000 entries, more than one third of the 1.9 million species on Earth.  However, since a recent estimate has put the total a lot higher at 8.7 million species (not including bacteria and viruses) the site still has a long way to go.
