A project is planned to start soon, where information about all the world's 1.8 million species will be gathered and put together into one freely accessible website:

There was a good report about this on NPR. Haven't been able to find a link to the story but I'll keep looking.

Crikey what an undertaking!

The thing is, 1.8 million is only the ones that have been discovered so far!

And they have taken approximately 13,700,000,000 years (the age of the universe) to evolve.

It had better have a section on creme eggs in in and yes, before you start, they ARE a life form! Where do you think tiny chocolate chickens come from?
