  BioEd Online An online educational resource for educators, students, and parents. This site brings currect technology information and educational tools for biology and related subjects. Our goal is to provide useful, accurate, and current information and materials that build upon and enhance the skills and knowledge of science educators. The site features a slide library, streaming video presentations, and a science news update directly from the journal Nature.
  Laboratory Assesment Strategies is an article describing techniques that teach students how to effectively collect and present scientific information.
  Flymove An incredible site with images, movies, and animations that illustrate many facets of fly biology. This site is easy to navigate and the information would be very valuable for students or teachers of courses in developmental biology. This site provides tools for understanding fruit fly biology and the use of these genetically tractable organisms for understanding complex developmental processes. The information is well organized and users can browse or search for information on specific topics. Using studies conducted on the development of Drosophila melanogaster, FlyMove offers a variety of interactive and multimedia tools that can aid in comprehending complex developmental processes. Specifically, the site focuses on the principles of classic genetics, organogenesis, overviews of the development process and its stages, and common laboratory methods of monitoring development.
  Online Biology Book
  Kimball's Online Biology Book Dr. John W. Kimball's Biology Pages form an online biology textbook, with each topic outlined in a series of essays hyperlinked to other relevant topics so as to emphasize the interconnectedness of the different disciplines of biology.

Earth Science Acronyms, Glossaries and Gazetteers a list of sites that contain helpful acronyms used throughout the Earth Science (and other) communities, glossaries of Earth Science terms, and gazetteers of geographic location names.

Encyclopedia Of Life. Bound encyclopedias can't hold a cursor to the multimedia display of the first part of the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), a Web site assembled by a consortium of 25 museums, botanical gardens, and other scientific institutions. The first phase, unveiled in late February 2008, includes information on 30,000 plants and animals. Eventually, the site will incorporate images, distribution maps, life histories, and identification data for each of Earth's 1.8 million known species.
The first entries were built using multiple existing sources, an effort the collaborators hope to automate in the future. The first set of pages concentrates on fish and amphibians, as well as plants related to peppers, tomatoes, and petunias. Perhaps SWC faculty would like to volunteer to be curator for one or more species. []
