This seems like a good time to announce my "K-Paleo" web site, which
features a large menu of paleontology and geology-related Internet resources
arranged by caregory. It is located at:
Included are many sub-menus on vertebrates (including over 200 dinosaur links
in a separate Dino Den site), invertebrates, plants, microfossils, museums,
university department, clubs, societies, government agencies, newsgroups,
mailing lists, field trip info, paleo education, my own articles
on the Paluxy controvesy, and much more. I think this would be very useful to
teachers and students. Feel feel to mention the site in other Internet groups
and/or link to it as you please. Of course, any corrections or recommended
new links would be appreciated. I'll be adding more graphics in the near
future but won't go overboard, to keep the downloads quick.
Another good educational resource is the Talk.origins Faqs/archives. Although
the talk.origins is a creation/evolution newsgroup, the FAQ/archives contain
a vast collection of articles on the fossil record, evolution, geology, and
related subjects. The URL is:
Or you can access it from the "General Paleontology" and "Paleo for Teachers
and Students" sections of my K-Paleo Site.
Thank you very much.
