The most valuable link on the homepage is to an image gallery and catalog of
several hundred breathtaking, colorized electron micrographs of organisms or
their structures. A small view of each image can be accessed by clicking the
category in the left frame. A selected image will be displayed in a large view
in the right frame. Images can also be accessed through a search feature or
through the catalog link, which presents a full screen version of the image with
a brief description. Any of these images can be used with permission of Denis
Kunkel. The javascript SEM link on the homepage suggests that it is a virtual
SEM, however it actually connects to a site that contains minimal instruction
on SEM but where the user can zoom in on selected specimens. Detailed views of
selected organisms, as well as explanatory text, can also be accessed through
the Most Wanted Bugs link and the Zoom In link. There is also a link to a very brief
introduction to microscopy.

Technical Remarks:

The link to Microcosm exhibit of photos was not working.
