Selected Resources from the Web:
AmphiaWeb offers ready access to taxonomic information for recognized species of amphibian in the world. Species accounts are being added regularly by specialists and volunteers and they contain species descriptions, life history information, conservation status, literature references, photos and range maps for many species.

Animal Diversity Web is an online database of animal natural history, distribution, classification, and conservation biology at the University of Michigan. Thousands of species accounts may include text, pictures of living animals, photographs and movies of specimens, and/or recordings of sounds. Students write the text of these accounts and ADW cannot guarantee their accuracy. Descriptions of levels of organization above the species level, especially phyla, classes, and in some cases, orders and families.

BiologyBrowser produced by Thomson Scientific, is a free web site offering resources for the life sciences information community featuring dictionaries, an animal thesaurus, and a glossary for taxonomy.

WildFinder is a map-driven, searchable database of more than 30,000 species worldwide, with a powerful search tool that allows users to discover where species live or explore wild places to find out what species live there.

BIODIDAC is a database of over 5,000 line drawings, photographs, videos, and animations for biology.

PubMed Central is the U.S. National Library of Medicine's digital archive of life sciences journal literature. Access to the full text of articles in PMC is free, except where a journal requires a subscription for access to recent articles.
