Algae (http://seaweed.ucg.ie/defaultsunday.html)- This site has a lot of information on all aspects of seaweeds and marine algal biology. Information on all aspects of seaweeds and marine algae is included under "Teaching". This includes some very simple information on the basic kinds of marine algae and some material on algae in general.

Caribbean Conservation Institute (http://www.cccturtle.org/ccctmp.htm)- The Caribbean Conservation Corporation (CCC) is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization based in Florida with offices and projects in several other locations. CCC is the oldest and most accomplished sea turtle organization in the world! Since its founding in 1959, CCC’s work has greatly improved the survival outlook for several species of sea turtles. CCC is a world-renowned leader in sea turtle research and conservation; we thank you for joining us in our efforts!

Microbes.Info: Gateway to Microbes on the Web (http://www.microbes.info/)- Microbes.info is an internet web site designed to bring useful and interesting microbiology informational resources to you. With literally billions of web pages out there in cyberspace, searching effectively and efficiently for any information is becoming increasingly difficult. Finding accurate and specific information on microbiology topics is much like "looking for a needle in a haystack". This web site attempts to reduce the clutter and the size of the haystack in an effort to help you filter through the information in an organized manner

Mystic Aquarium (http://www.mysticaquarium.org)

Animal Aquafacts: Information about Lots of Marine Animals(http://www.mysticaquarium.org/animals/facts/animalfacts.asp)- A vast and diverse world exists in the ocean. Countless species of animals call it their home, and their homes can reach from hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor to the salt marshes of the coasts. Read on to find out about many different types of marine life and ocean habitats. While you're here, spend some time to see how we do what we do here.

Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (http://www.piscoweb.org/what/index.html)- the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO) is a research consortium involving several dozen marine scientists from four universities along the U.S. West Coast. The overall scientific program is directed by the eight principal investigators.

Three Domains of Life (http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/alllife/threedomains.html) - Until comparatively recently, living organisms were divided into two kingdoms: animal and vegetable, or the Animalia and the Plantae. In the 19th century, evidence began to accumulate that these were insufficient to express the diversity of life, and various schemes were proposed with three, four, or more kingdoms. The scheme most often used currently divides all living organisms into five kingdoms: Monera (bacteria), Protista, Fungi, Plantae, and Animalia. This coexisted with a scheme dividing life into two main divisions: the Prokaryotae (bacteria, etc.) and the Eukaryotae (animals, plants, fungi, and protists).

Tree of Life (http://tolweb.org/tree) - The Tree of Life is a collaborative web project, produced by biologists from around the world. On more than 2600 World Wide Web pages, the Tree of Life provides information about the diversity of organisms on Earth, their history, and characteristics.

Turtle Maps (http://ioseaturtles.org/mapping)- The Marine Turtle Interactive Mapping System (or Marine Turtle IMapS) provides user-friendly, public access to reliable and current information on marine turtles.

University of California Santa Barbara, Biological Sciences (http://www.lifesci.ucsb.edu)

Bioluminescence Web Page (http://www.lifesci.ucsb.edu/~biolum)- Reliable information on marine bioluminescence is widely scattered in the literature and in unpublished data. While this is merely an inconvenience to the relatively small core of investigators actively working in the discipline, there is a much larger group of life scientists, oceanographers and applied marine scientists who frequently come upon problems involving bioluminescence and who might have little awareness of the availability and reliability of information on the subject.
