Welcome!

Welcome to the Life DiscoveryEd Digital Library, an online resource portal for biology education in ecology, plant biology and evolution. This project is a partnership of the Ecological Society of America, the Society for Economic Botany, the Botanical Society of America and the Society for the Study of Evolution launched in March 2013. This project has been made possible by a major grant from the National Science Foundation.

Currently, you will find that most resources are appropriate for undergraduate audiences. We welcome resources for middle and high school audiences that align with the Next Generation Science Standards.

We welcome your contribution. You will be able to share images, syllabi, labs, lectures, figures, videos, classroom activities and data sets in LifeDiscoveryEdDL. We're here to assist you to submit your resource.


To submit a resource.
You will need to select one of the four participating portals to initiate the review process:

LifeDiscoveryEd Digital Library
EcoEd Digital Library
PlantEd Digital Library
EvoEd Digital Library
EconBotEd Digital Library
