Animal Diversity Web (ADW)


The Animal Diversity Web is a World Wide Web site that provides access to images of animals combined with descriptions of natural history and diversity. Species Accounts provide detailed information about the biology of individual species of animals. Their contents can be queried, which makes it easy to find information and creates a tool that students or others can use to discover general principles of biology. It is an excellent resource for teaching about ecology, conservation biology, and evolutionary biology.
