Online Dictionary of Nature Imagery of the Bible

THE AWOL BLOG: Dictionary of Nature Imagery of the Bible.
The DNI project is interdisciplinary in its approach, and focuses on the nature images encapsulated within the literary compositions of the Hebrew Bible. The Dictionary is easily searchable by the name of the item in Hebrew characters, in transcription, and by its English translation. Each item takes its place within one of the five ecological fields: fauna, flora, landscape characteristics, climate systems, water sources.
The project is based at Tel Aviv University. It is just getting started, but it looks promising.
