Teen Tech Tip of the Week #15: Vita Tech 
Welcome back to a New Year. Our first post of 2013 is for those who couldn't get enough of BBC's Planet Earth or Blue Planet or who are interested in learning more about biology and zoology.

Below are various resources that give you a closer look at all life on Earth.

National Geographic
Browse through some of the Earth's more popular creatures, both past and present, and learn basic information about habitat and life cycle.

Tree of Life
This online database of biodiversity contains information of the evolutionary relationships of all organisms. Researchers and contributors at the ToL Project work under the goal of displaying an entry for every organism on the planet current and past.

Catalogue of Life
Species 2000 and The Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) have teamed up for the most comprehensive taxonomic catalogue.

Encyclopedia of Life
This show stopper is the product of Edward O. Wilson's award winning TED speech calling for an online database to catalogue every species currently on the planet. While not the first endeavor to do so, this is the most robust effort complete with various forms of multimedia for each creature.

Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS)
This data retrieval system aggregates an extremely comprehensive set of geospatial information about life in the oceans. Be sure to check out the how-to's and use this powerful resource to its fullest.
