Content

This comprehensive online biology reference book consists of lists of terms covering an extensive range of biological topics, and is aimed primarily at graduate students. Many of the terms are linked to more in-depth discussions. The homepage has a section called 'background to biology news', which lists the latest discoveries in the biological sciences accompanied by links to background information. The site might therefore be of special use to researchers requiring background information in fields outside their area of expertise.
