Comprehensive Online Encyclopedia of the World's Animals

Help your students discover the wild world of animals through EBSCO's Encyclopedia of Animals. This extensive database provides students with thousands of easy-to-read encyclopedia entries about mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, dinosaurs and prehistoric animals.

Extensive Animal Coverage

Each entry begins with a simple category breakdown of the animal including kingdom, class, order, genus and species, and geographical locale as well as a detailed description. Many entries include colorful images.

The Encyclopedia of Animals is included in Science Reference Center, the Middle Search and Primary Search databases, and is available via the EBSCOhost and Explora interfaces.


My overall impression of the EBSCOhost interface is that it offers something for everybody.
