This page is part of the Biology in Motion series. It offers a Flash-animated simulation of a simplified genetic phenotype evolution - a very visual illustration of a complex process. Teachers will find this one fascinating, and there's enough going on that students may be tempted to use it for individual experimenting on their own.

This interactive look at Jane Goodall's Gombe preserve will probably require some introduction, but there's much to do in this site that invites all sorts of exploration. There are bios of both people and chimps, as well as an appealing "become a chimpanzee" section that allows students to follow a chimp's day. Lots of uses for this one in studying Africa, habitats, ecosystems, and the like

This site offers a three-part unit on the oceans that emphasizes the effects that humans can have in destroying or preserving marine ecosystems and species.

That said, the content is perfectly sufficient without the sound.
