A Tagged Biodiversity Wall

Here names for selected specimens and groups are available directly in the gigapixel panorama of the biodiversity wall

The Biodiversity Wall (new gigapixel panorama) (2007-08)Museum für Naturkunde Berlin

The biodiversity wall has been created without labels bearing species names. Nature has no labels. We encourage you to take a journey through unlabeled land!

But then ... if you like someone, you try to remember the name. Thus, the next image is a version of the gigapixel panorama with the names of selected species written over it.

Tap into it, find your favorite species, zoom until you can read the names!
