DOL (DiversityofLife.org) is a web interface based on the Encino Software Project. It encompasses a set of server-side programs written in C and Perl combined with
a comprehensive relational database with a comprehensive set of SQL query tools and user-management functions. The
goal of DOL is to provide a “plug-and-play” management and server solution for biodiversity data, with tools for image database management and retrieval, morphological data management, diagnostic key generation, cladogram display and navigation, specimen data, descriptions, classifications and nomenclature.
DOL SISTER WEBSITES:
In addition to the main DOL and PSO websites hosted at Cornell, two other nodes have been added in 2006. One of these is now public:
PhytoImages is served from Southern

Illinois University, in Carbondale, Illinois. The webmaster and head curator of the site is Dan Nickrent, as specialist in parasitic plants. However, the site includes a wide variety of vascular plant photos of extremely high quality, and will be the server for a large project by Dale Vitt on bryophytes. The latter project will include new extensions to Encino that allow relational databasing of biomes classifications to images.
HELSINKI: Natural History Museum of Finland. This site serves beetle images and keys, but is not yet public. It should become public in fall 2006.
Since the software (Encino) thats serves DOL nodes is essentially plug-and-play, and is open source with a minimal
license requirement, if you are interested in developing your own DOL node, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. DOL is free to non-profit organizations and researchers with a collaboration agreement

The DOL system has been developed independently without any funding from granting agencies, in particular it has not been funded by NSF. Development of software has been mostly on a few (outdated) computers privately purchased by Kevin Nixon. The L. H. Bailey Hortorium (part of the
Department of Plant Biology) at Cornell University has provided hosting for the websites that are part of the core DOL implementation (www.plantsystematics.org, diversityoflife.org, etc.).
The L.H. Bailey Hortorium and BH Herbarium have also provided support for work-study students who have scanned and uploaded slides from the BH photographic slide collection (e.g., Hal Moore Jr. palm images), as well as

Dennis Stevenson of the New York Botanical Garden provided the original classification
database for plants which was based mostly on the classification of Armen Takhtajan and which was entered and maintained by Daniel Atha.
Jan De Laet (now at GBIF) has contributed his programming skills to upgrade the online java cladogram viewer (now
The curatorial board (consisting mostly of staff members from the New York Botanical Garden) entirely without funding or any other rewards have contributed the bulk of the images on this site.
