bugbios
http://www.insects.org/index.html
GRADE LEVEL: 6-12




CONTENT:
This site explores the world of insects with high quality photos, interesting articles, and other information.

AESTHETICS:
This very sophisticated design incorporates just enough whimsical graphics to make the site appealing to users of all ages.

ORGANIZATION:
A top navigation bar that is repeated throughout the site makes navigating the four main sections simple.

REVIEW:
Dexter Sear, an entrepreneur who has an obvious love of entomology, created bugbios. Site resources include useful information on all kinds of insects from ants and bees to walkingsticks. A collection of insect photos complete with descriptions and classification information can found in the Entophiles section. Class Insecta, which is under development and promises more classroom resources, features a teaching module on the wing patterns of butterflies and moths. Users will also find past issues of the Cultural Entomology Digest, an e-zine that explores the roles insects play in different aspects of human culture. Included is an extensive list of annotated links to other insect sites and resources on the Net.
