The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) works to provide global access to knowledge about life on Earth. The Encyclopedia of Life gathers and shares scientific knowledge about all living things in a single online resource
Over 180,000 specimens of which about 100,000 correspond to type specimens of vascular plants and mosses. Also included are fungi, lichens, bryophytes, and algae.
IFPNI provides an authoritative online, open-access, community-generated registry of fossil plant nomenclature as a service to the global scientific community. Dynamic data base documents all nomenclatural novelties (new scientific names of extinct organisms) and associated data, including registration of the scientific publications containing nomenclatural acts and authors generated taxonomic literature in palaeobotany and palaeontology in general, and allied disciplines.
to create an easily accessible database with reliable information on species names and their hierarchical classification. The database will be reviewed periodically to ensure high quality with valid classifications, revisions, and additions of newly described species. The ITIS includes documented taxonomic information of flora and fauna from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
You can use this site to find out about fossil collections, individual plants and animals, taxonomic groups, references to publications, stratigraphic units, time scales, and time intervals.
The Tree of Life Web Project is a collection of information about biodiversity. Its goal is to contain a page with pictures, text, and other information for every species and for each group of organisms, living or extinct. Connections between Tree of Life web pages follow phylogenetic branching patterns between groups of organisms, so visitors can browse the hierarchy of life and learn about phylogeny and evolution as well as the characteristics of individual groups.
