Global Seed Vault Opens, Encyclopedia of Live on Line


The Global Seed Vault opened near the North Pole on 26 February, and an Internet project aimed at promoting biodiversity went on line. The so-called "doomsday" vault is in the remote Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard and is designed to protect millions of seeds from climate change and other disasters. The Encyclopedia of Life web site is just a click away and is meant as a source of information about all living things. VOA's Paul Sisco has more.
