To streamline browsing and make information more accessible, the accounts for individual species are being reorganized to include tabbed browsing. Each species will have up to three tabs, providing ready access to brief information ("Quick Facts" - the default page for each species), scientifically written and referenced accounts ("Detailed Information" - not present for all species), and a list of the literature used in the creation of the pages as well as a list of other resources available ("References").
