The recently established Biology, Geography and Health Online Magazine has now been integrated into the Life, Earth & Health Sciences Website to provide an improved user experience for visitors interested in the basic and applied natural sciences. While has traditionally provided extensive bibliographic information in biology and in the health sciences, contributes its vast stock of information in the geographic sciences. Natural Sciences Portal

After integration of the scientific information contributed by, now provides a total of 38,897,688 bibliographic references from as early as the beginning of the 18th century. 22,387,131 or 58% of these entries feature a summary of their scientific content. With the inclusion of a large number of geographic references earlier retrievable from only, thrives to become a leading provider of scientific information in the basic and applied natural sciences including biology, geography and health.

The Research Section 13 of the Life, Earth & Health Sciences Magazine contains a large number of the newly included geographic content. For example, Chapter 12126 of this section provides 293 studies on earth-sciences studies including the following entries about "Geographic Information Systems" (GIS) research: geographic information system predictions of past, present habitat distribution and areas for re-introduction of the endangered subtropical rainforest shrub Triunia robusta (Proteaceae) from south-east Queensland Australia, geographic information system and database for the soil survey for the State of Kuwait, geographic information system method for assessing chemo-diversity in medicinal plants, and geographic information systems in fisheries management and planning. Many more articles focus on the geographic variance, variability and variation of biological species on earth. Examples include the geographic range size, seedling ecophysiology and phenotypic plasticity in Australian Acacia species, geographic variability in lidar predictions of forest stand structure in the Pacific Northwest, geographic variation in diet composition of the grass snake along the mainland and an island of Italy, and geographic variation in habitat differentiation of subalpine forests in northeastern Japan.

The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Website was launched in 1998 and has become a comprehensive publisher of references in biology, in the applied life sciences agriculture, horticulture and forestry, in the earth sciences, in the environmental sciences, and in the health sciences. Besides its design optimized for speed, the site also features a mobile version for smartphones and accounts at Twitter and Facebook.
