The Art of Botanical Illustration
An Exhibition in Special Collection, The University of Delaware
"...highlights selections from the University of Delaware's Special Collections which show the development of botanical illustration
from early printed books to the present day. The primary goal of
botanical illustration is not art, but scientific accuracy. It must
portray a plant with the precision and level of detail for it to be
recognized and distinguished from another species."
Sections include: Herbals, Travel & Exploration ; Scientific Botany ; Women Artists ; Seed Catalogs ; Modern Botanicals.
Curated by Iris Snyder

Atlas of Plant Anatomy
Sections include: Cells & Tissues ; Reproductive Structures ; Roots ; Stems ; Apical Meristems ; Leaves.
By Paul J. Schulte, University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The BioImage Homepage
A European Initiative for a New Database of Multidimensional Biological Images.
"The BioImage Database project, funded by the European Union, is a collaboration between eight European groups. Its aim is to provide the general scientific community with a flexible and searchable database of multi-dimensional biological images."

Embryology Tutorial
"This tutorial is part of an ongoing project designed to implement multimedia and computer-based learning materials in the university undergraduate classroom...is meant to supplement the presentation of standard videotape, laser video, digitized video and animation sequences in the traditional lecture period."
By Jeff Hardin, Dept. of Zoology, University of Wisconsin

Noble Foundation Plant Image Gallery
"...designed to assist botanists, ecologists, and natural resource managers with the identification of plants. It should also prove useful to educators in the classroom as well as students who are required to learn plants as a part of their studies."

The Online Macromolecular Museum (OMM)
"...is a site for the display and study of macromolecules. Macromolecular structures, as discovered by crystallographic or NMR methods, are scientific objects in much the same sense as fossil bones or dried specimens: they can be archived, studied, and displayed in aesthetically pleasing, educational exhibits...The OMM's exhibits are interactive tutorials on individual molecules in which hypertextual explanations of important biochemical features are linked to illustrative renderings of the molecule at hand."

Virtual Cell
"...is a collection of still images, texts and movies covering the structure and functioning of a typical plant cell."
By Matej Lexa

Visible Human Project
"It is creating a complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the male and female human body. The current phase of the project is collecting transverse CT, MRI and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers at one millimeter intervals."
Includes an extensive collection of links to projects based upon the Visible Human data

A Web Atlas of Cellular Structures Using Light and Confocal Microscopy
"This web site displays a series of light and confocal micrographs illustrating a variety of subcellular structures and organelles. We hope to provide a useful educational resource for people interested in cytology who do not have access to advanced imaging technologies or cell biological expertise...We have employed a cultured epithelial cell line, CV1-monkey kidney cells, for these experiments and stained for such organelles as the Golgi apparatus, the endoplasmic reticulum, nucleus, mitochondria, and several cytoskeletal elements
