Technical Issues

We are experiencing some technical issues with the email response system. If you are trying to create an account or submit a resource, please contact Teresa Mourad at teresa@esa.org if you do not receive your activation code for a new account or when you have submitted a resource for review. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to resolve this very soon.

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 was 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.

You will need to select one of the four participating portals to initiate the review process:
