Top 55 Reference Websites    Here are the Top 55 Reference Websites as chosen by the eBizMBA editorial team. Several factors were used to determine what we believe to be the 55 best reference websites including popularity, content depth, uniqueness, accuracy, and ease of use.
Encyclopedia of Life    The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) is an ambitious, even audacious project to organize and make available via the Internet virtually all information about life present on Earth. At its heart lies a series of Web sites—one for each of the approximately 1.8 million known species—that provide the entry points to this vast array of knowledge. The entry-point for each site is a species page suitable for the general public, but with several linked pages aimed at more specialized users. The sites sparkle with text and images that are enticing to everyone, as well as providing deep links to specific data.
