The Deep Biosphere Laboratory at Goteborg University consists of about 10 people whose unifying interest is in microbial life in underground and sub-seafloor environments. Visitors to the site can access summaries of research projects, personnel information, and links to publications on the topic of underground and sub-seafloor microbes. Research topics include microbes in deep Swedish and Finnish ... Full description.

This site is a portion of a larger program in which users construct a world and the life that inhabits it. Marine botany is the subject of this site, and users are instructed on how they can 'evolve' their own plant species to meet the characteristics of specific marine environments. Although the goal of this activity is to create imaginary species, it is based on having the user develop an understanding ... Full description.

NASA and Russian scientists have been selected to take the search for life in the solar system to the frozen reaches of Earth. Life forms (from diatoms and bacteria to mammoths) preserved in the Siberian permafrost can yield evidence about how life has changed on the molecular level and provide a treasure trove of ancient enzymes, proteins, and biochemicals. The ecosystems of the ice and permafrost ... Full description.

For ecologists, the horseshoe crab is an important creature- a vastly adaptable organism that predates most species on the planet, with a lifecyle that is interlocked with other animals. Users can view information, photographs, and diagrams that explain the anatomy, range and habitat, lifecycle, ecological niche, reproductive cycle, and medical uses of the horseshoe crab.

This computer activity is an introduction to cladistics, which organizes living things by common ancestry and evolutionary relationships, enabling us to better understand life's present diversity and evolutionary history. The predictive power of cladistics can be used to answer questions that cannot be answered by observation of a living organism, such as "What did dinosaurs taste like?" This site ...

This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 9-12. It centers around fossils found in the Burgess Shale in western Canada. Topics include body shapes of fossils found, the movement of organisms from oceans to land, and whether organisms existed that did not fossilize. This part of geologic history began in the Cambrian Sea about 540 million years ago. The resource ... Full description.
