There are so many cool Biology websites out there, it's hard to know where to start!

Here are a few to get you going.

If you come across any other good ones, pleeaaaase let us know!


 One of the best free science site out there for KS3 and 4. Loads of   interesting stuff, and with great graphics too. Check it out.                                         



 FANTASTIC site - you must visit if only for the great science jokes! Their 'Sci-Cast' pages are also worth a visit - loads of great science videos of bizarre, magical experiments. I think this is probably the best overall site going.

bullet www.bbc.co.uk
 If you want to do some revision, take a look at 'Bitesize GCSE'. Loads of links to other areas as well as cool 'flash' games.


bulletThe Biology Place
The Biology Place is an excellent resource for any biology class. Lots of great information on current topics in all areas of biology. Lots of on-line student activities in the biological sciences. Highest recommendation for all biologists.


bulletThe Biology Project
This is a site well worth visiting - many times!  And more than that - it is FUN and ENGAGING! Check out The Biology Project at the University of Arizona.

bulletBiology Teaching Home Page
This site is the Biology Teaching Home Page in Hong Kong. The concept map portion of this site is very good. The concept map topics include cellular respiration, photosynthesis, transport in plants, moveable joints, and a variety of human systems (good for Anatomy and Physiology students). These concept maps are easy to understand and may make the traditional "tough" topic of cellular respiration a bit easier for students to understand.

bulletCSU BioWEB
California State University's server which consolidates existing Biological Science teaching and research resources and creates and distributes original multimedia resources for the teaching of biology.

bulletThe Electronic Zoo
Everything about animals on the Internet!

bulletEvolution and the Nature of Science
This collection of classroom lessons effectively teaches basic concepts in the areas of evolution and the nature of science. The lessons were developed and tested by biology teachers during nine years of NSF funded summer institutes.

bulletFederation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
Don't miss their feature presentations Six Animals that Teach Scientists about Humans" and their "Life Science Puzzles". The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology represents nine scientific societies with nearly 40,000 scientist-members.

bulletGray's Anatomy
The online edition of this classic text features 1,247 illustrations and more than 13,000 entries in the index. Great for any prospective medics.

bulletPrimate Center
Great site devoted to all aspects of primate biology. Site includes images, animations, articles, references, links to related sites, and more.

bulletSeeing, Hearing, and Smelling the World
This site contains a clear, well-illustrated series of features about the human senses, the brain, and sensory defects.

bulletThe Tree of Life
"The Tree of Life is a project to link biological information available on the Internet in the form of a phylogenetic navigator. With more than 1,000 pages currently in the Tree, housed on 10 computers, the project continues to grow."
(Ann Wild, NSTA Reports!)

bulletUniversity of California Museum of Paleontology
The mission of UCMP is to "... promote the understanding of the history of life and the diversity of the Earth's biota through research and education." Don't miss their Discover the History of Life section

bulletWeb Anatomy
