Welcome to the Life DiscoveryEd Digital Library (LDDL), 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 Botanical Society of America and the Society for the Study of Evolution, collectively, the Life Discovery Partners. 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.
The Life Discovery Partners are committed to bringing quality resources to educators free of charge based on the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) license. Teaching activities, data sets and figure sets on the site are peer-reviewed and accepted for educational use by one of the partners. Other resources such as images and syllabi have been reviewed by a Resource Editor.
