Hello. I'm interested in natural history and I was just wondering if there are any resources out there, a collective list, of all the flora and fauna of World of Warcraft or something similar. I've played since 2006 and what always brings me back is the world itself, but what I find strange is that for such a large and diverse world Blizzard haven't really, for authenticity's sake, given names to trees and other natural fantasy elements in the world. For example, how much do we know about the trees of Teldrassil apart from the fact they are beautiful? Tolkien had names for some of his trees and wood, etc, but I haven't ever come across anything like that for World of Warcraft. What about the natural history of the world? There should be resources for those who are interested that detail these things. Are there maps of the super-continent of Kalimdor before it sundered, for example? We do indeed have names for specific standout herbs and things for the herbalism profession, but what about the those bushes, trees, rocks, and other natural elements that litter the world with which we cannot interact? It really interests me to think about how the landscape of Northrend, say the Stormpeaks, were formed. I've always liked the idea of writing my own list for the natural history or making a website dedicated to the subject, but obviously it'd all be non-cannon.
Thanks for reading.
