Another is Jose Zeledon, a Costa Rican ornithologist who identified numerous birds in the country. For each featured individual, visitors can check out a timeline of their lives, featured images, and digitized books from the Biodiversity Heritage Collection (available via the Find Me in Books Link). In addition to exploring this collection by individuals, visitors are invited to browse by Country or Language of featured material or explore material via an interactive timeline.
