|The Earth Life Web|
|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 for me to write about all of it. Just typing out the names of all the species would take me well over 10 years, however I have no intention of trying to do that. Even so there is still a lot of writing I have to do, 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.
I believe that we, as human beings, are lucky to have come into existence on such a beautiful planet. I also believe that obtaining a better understanding of the world around us, particularly the living aspects of it, is an important step along the journey to both peace within ourselves and to our success as a species.
I am enjoying creating this site and I hope you will enjoy reading what is written here.
