Move over, Wikipedia: You're about to get owned by the Encyclopedia of Life. This all-encompassing encyclopedia aims to devote an electronic page to essentially every single known species on Earth. Like other reference books, Encyclopedia of Life entries will include taxonomy, evolutionary history, behavior, and overall importance for human well being.

The Encyclopedia of Life is currently being curated simultaneously by scientists and non-scientists from all over the world, and officially disproves the theory that the Internet is evil.

Implications - The Encyclopedia of Life project is the most practical use of the infinitely vast amounts of information available on the internet. Its aim is to organize all of the information available about present life on Earth, a project which seems far-reaching, but is well on its way to completion.
