Actionbioscience.org is a non-commercial, educational web site created to promote bioscience literacy. The web site provides peer reviewed articles by scientists, science educators, and science students on issues related to six bioscience content areas: environment, biodiversity, genomics, biotechnology, evolution, and science policy. Actionbioscience.org is owned and operated by the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS), a scientific association dedicated to advancing biological research and education for the welfare of society.
Charles Darwin’s Library is a digital edition and virtual reconstruction of the surviving books owned by Charles Darwin. This BHL special collection draws on original copies and surrogates from other libraries. It also provides full transcriptions of his annotations and marks.
Phytozome is the Plant Comparative Genomics portal of the Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute. Families of related genes representing the modern descendants of ancestral genes are constructed at key phylogenetic nodes. These families allow easy access to clade-specific orthology/paralogy relationships as well as insights into clade-specific novelties and expansions. As of release v10, Phytozome provides access to forty-eight sequenced and annotated green plant genomes which have been clustered into gene families at 12 evolutionarily significant nodes.
the first complete edition of the writings of naturalist and co-founder of the theory of evolution Alfred Russel Wallace. Including a comprehensive compilation of his specimens - much of it never before seen.
Easily find journals, view abstracts, and link directly to full text from over 20,000 titles from hundreds of publishers, all at one web site.
Only those titles subscribed to by NYBG are available Full Text.
The Biodiversity Heritage Library-Australia is the digital literature component of the Atlas of Living Australia. Increase the exposure of Australian literature, e.g. by linking BHL-Au to national catalogues, such as the National Library of Australia’s Trove. Scope and undertake new digitisation projects to add new Australian-published literature, or rare literature held in Australian libraries
BioOne is a global, not-for-profit collaboration bringing together scientific societies, publishers, and libraries to provide access to critical, peer-reviewed research in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences.

bioRxiv (pronounced "bio-archive") is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. bioRxiv accepts preprints of articles covering all aspects of research in the life sciences.
The main purpose of BioStor is to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BioStor provides tools for extracting, annotating, and visualising literature from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and other sources).
The IUCN Red List is the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of plant and animal species. It uses a set of criteria to evaluate the extinction risk of thousands of species and subspecies.
JSTOR has created a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive of scholarship, is actively preserving over one thousand academic journals in both digital and print formats
New York Botanical Garden authorized users only.
Only those titles subscribed to by NYBG are available in Full Text if published after 1923. ALL content in JSTOR is available if published prior to 1923.
Each name in the following list of naturalists is linked to a corresponding capsule "chrono-biographical" sketch of that individual prepared by the authors. Coverage extends from approximately 1950 backward in time as far as the eighteenth century; figures from all over the world are included (though there is admittedly a decided Anglo-American bias). The target subject here is biogeography, but this being a broad field there are many persons on the list who are better known as climatologists, zoologists, botanists, ecologists, oceanographers, paleontologists, etc.--in other words, who made their main reputations in cognate disciplines.
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.
Publications in this collection include research monographs, journals, conference proceedings, or books. Research results behind these publications have been peer reviewed to ensure the best quality science.
