Websites of Interest

By: Debbie Currie

Cell Biology Animation: Available in English and six other languages, this interactive site provides dynamic insight into the lives of cells. Readers may select from just under two dozen categories, including Amino Acids, DNA, Mitosis, and many others. Each section harbors a new activity that explains an aspect of how cells work. For instance, readers may select Meiosis, which will pull up a cell that is ready to divide. Clicking the cell then sets off a barrage of actions, including interphase, prophase I, pro metaphase I, metaphase I, and so on. With many processes to choose from, the site can provide hours of educational entertainment to anyone who would like to learn more about cell biology.

Nature: The Specials Archive: The Specials Archive at Nature, the international weekly journal of science, contains wonders. Hundreds of supplements cover a staggering range of topics, from science in India to controversies in stem cell research, from the latest in microscopy, to the advances in microbial genetics. Readers may view all specials, or limit their search to one of five categories: Biological sciences; Chemical sciences; Earth & Environmental sciences; Physical sciences; and Community and Society. They may also browse the Subject Category and Article Category archives, or search by Author and Subject Index. The University Experiment special may be of special interest to Scout Readers as it chronicles the pressure on universities to not only produce and convey knowledge, but to be “engines of economic growth, beacons of equal opportunity, laboratories for new modes of learning and more.”

Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies: Research: The Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison is comprised of four researcher centers: The Center for Climatic Research (CCR); the Center for Culture, History and Environment (CHE); the Land Tenure Center (LTC); and the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE). From the Nelson Institute’s homepage, readers may select any one of these dynamic institutes to find out more about their research, news, symposiums, and resources. For instance, readers may select CCR to browse the center’s work on global and regional biogeochemistry, its assessments of past and future climate impacts, and much more. With its emphasis on bringing together the best of the humanities, engineering, business, and law with groundbreaking work in biological, physical, health, and social sciences, the Nelson Institute is always breaking new ground.

US EPA: Water: This site from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) features a host of resources about water and water-related issues. With many helpful articles available under categories such as Drinking Water, Education & Training, Laws & Regulations, Our Waters, Pollution Prevention & Control, Science & Technology, Water Infrastructure, and others, the site is a welcome reference for readers who want to know more about water and the treatment of water resources in the U.S. For instance, the Our Waters section reveals a list of how the EPA demarcates different types of water, from Drinking Water to Ground Water to Rivers & Streams. The page explains each type in a sentence or two, then links to a more in-depth explanation, complete with additional links and resources.
