Biology Lite on the Web

Interesting Science Sites on the Internet

Last revised October 1, 2007

Here's a list of some of my favorite sites. Of course, it's heavy on the science, and particularly on the biology side of things, but there are a few other goodies mixed in for leavening. You can get to these sites either by typing in the URL in the location line, or by clicking on the hot links. If the link doesn't seem to work, try typing the URL yourself, since I may have made an error in the link instructions.

Just to practice, try this address: http://www.cod.edu

And here are a couple of the most commonly used search tools:

Yahoo is one of the best: http://www.yahoo.com
Google is an excellent broad sweep search engine: http://www.google.com

Here are some Gateway sites that take you to a lot of different places.
