Acquired in 2001 by the National Wildlife Federation, this non-profit site has browsable and searchable FieldGuides for birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, seashells, seashore creatures, spiders, insects, butterflies, wildflowers, and trees. The FieldGuides include a picture, scientific family, description, breeding, habitat, and range for each entry.
This site merges the book A Guide to Field Guides: Identifying the Natural History of North America by Diane Schmidt, Biology Librarian at the University of Illinois, and its companion Web site International Field Guides. After the publisher returned copyright to the book, the author decided to combine the two products and create a searchable database of field guides for plants, animals, and other objects in North America and around the world. Except where noted, all guides listed here were personally examined by the author.

Maps and photographs accompany the descriptions of each species.
