Scholarpedia is best understood by how it is unlike most wikis, differences arising from Scholarpedia’s academic origins, goals, and audience.

interesting excerpt: “The pancreas is full of so many bacteria that it essentially digests itself . As these organisms work their way to other organs, the body becomes discolored, first turning green, then purple, then black. If you can’t see the change, you’ll smell it soon enough, because the bacteria create an awful-smelling gas. In addition to smelling up the room, that gas will cause the body to bloat, the eyes to bulge out of their sockets and the tongue to swell and protrude. (In rare instances, this gas has created enough pressure after a few weeks to cause decomposing pregnant women to expel the fetus in a process known as coffin birth.)”
