Web Sites of Interest


Biodidac is a bank of digital resources for teaching biology, courtesy of the great folks at the University of Ottawa. First-time visitors will note that the materials are contained within three thematic areas, includingHistology and Organismal Biology. Visitors can click on each area to view high quality resolutions of various cells and bodies that can be used to create study guides for public health, medicine, and other related health fields. The What's New? area is a great way to learn about the latest additions to the site. Additionally, an Information section brings together details on the site's focus, various reports, and funding information. Finally, visitors can click on the Images area to learn more about specific images and animations of the fungi, animalia, and the structure of a
mitochondrion. [KMG]

Veterinary Anatomical Illustrations

These remarkable illustrations were taken from the classic works of German veterinary anatomists, Wilhelm Ellenberger and Hermann Baum, along with
medical illustrator, Hermann Dittrich. Originally published in texts from 1898 and 1911 through 1925, these works remain seminal for those studying various animals today. Animals covered here include the horse, cow, dog, lion, goat, and deer. Crafted as part of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections initiative, these works will be of special interest to veterinarians, anatomists, comparative anatomists, and anyone else with an interest in the musculoskeletal systems of animals. All told there are eighty plates here, rendered in exquisite detail. [KMG]
