The Taiwan Encyclopedia of Life

Announcing TaiEOL, a newly launched website from the Taiwan Forestry Bureau and Academica Sinica, an EOL global partner since 2012! TaiEOL serves information in traditional Chinese from hundreds of scientists and multiple databases for about 13,000 species, including plants, fish, amphibians and reptiles, birds, mammals, insects, corals, and spiders.  Some of this information is already shared on EOL, with more to come. Everything is available under EOL-approved Creative Commons licenses. Academica Sinica also translated EOL’s interface into traditional Chinese. Congratulations and thanks to the TaiEOL team and their many collaborators!

New One Species at a Time Podcast: Dolphins

You have probably seen cans of tuna in your local supermarket marked “dolphin safe.” That label means the tuna was fished in a way that spares most dolphins from being killed in the tuna fleet’s giant nets. In this podcast, biologist and guest reporter Matt Leslie brings us a story about tuna, the intertwined fate of fisheries and dolphins, and the work of scientists. It’s a story that lies behind the label of every can of tuna. It spans two generations of scientists and a revolution in scientific methods. Matt reports from a dolphin morgue in La Jolla, California, USA.
