Images of flora, fauna and habitats
As of now, images from the Animals, Plants and Biotopes (external link) catalogue on the image database ETH E-Pics can also be researched directly on the Knowledge Portal. They are available for download in web quality on ETH E-Pics for non-commercial purposes.
The collection of around 20,000 photographs comprises images (including extreme close-ups) of animals – especially insects – plants and habitats, such as uncultivated land, meadows, pastures and moors.
Many images were taken by the famous nature photographer Albert Krebs. The Biosystematics group at ETH Zurich’s Institute of Integrative Biology is responsible for the catalogue’s contents.
