Discover Life in America Photography Exhibit

Discover Life in America is sharing the biodiversity richness of the Great Smoky Mountains with UT Libraries. From now until September high resolution scans of plants, insects and fungi will adorn the Reference room.

Discover Life in America (DLIA) is the non-profit organization coordinating the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The ATBI seeks to identify every species that exists in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Some scientists estimate that up to 100,000 species live in the park, and as of today a little over 16,000 species have been documented. DLIA’s ATBI program has discovered over 900 species new to science and over 6,500 species previously not known to inhabit the park!

These high resolution scans have been created to showcase some of the beauty and diversity that exists within the park. While black bears and elk are mascots of the Smokies, there is another world to discover if you look more closely.
