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.


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


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

Welcome

Welcome to the Ecological Society of America's online education resource portal!
ESA's EcoEd Digital Library (EcoEdDL) is a forum for scientists and educators to locate and contribute peer reviewed resources for 21st century undergraduate ecology education. EcoEdDL strives to foster a community of ecology education users and contributors. Need Help or More Info? Contact EcoEdDL@esa.org.

Access Resources for Free

ESA is committed to bringing quality resources to educators free of charge. All items presented on the site are peer-reviewed and accepted for educational use by the Ecological Society of America and/or one of the peer Society partners.


Why do we ask you to create an account?
To improve our services to you we require all users to create a FREE account and provide information about your professional background. This information will only be shared in aggregate with the community and potential funders to paint a picture of whom we are serving in EcoEdDL and which resources are most helpful. Thank you for your support for EcoEdDL.

Welcome to the Society for Economic Botany's new online resource portal! This project is run in conjunction with the Ecological Society of America, the Society for the Study of Evolution, and the Botanical Society of America and is in part supported by the National Science Foundation.

Over the next few months we'll be refining this site as a tool designed to allow members to share resources online—images, syllabi, labs, lectures, data sets, software, etc. If you have a resource that helps the Society promote its mission, we're here to assist you in sharing it.
