A 60-ton wake up call

This time, I want to play for you the first episode of another podcast that I host and co-produce called the Podcast of Life.

It’s for a group called the Encyclopedia of Life, which is an online, evolving encyclopedia of every species on the planet.

Each episode of the podcast features a different marine organism, and you can find out more online.



Biodiversity encompasses the variety of life and the variation of genes. It's also a central tenet of the Encyclopedia of Life. Credit: EOL.

The Encyclopedia of Life was born when biologist E.O. Wilson said, "Imagine an electronic page for each species of organism on Earth..."
