The Why Files (last mentioned in the June 28, 2002 NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences
) is "a popular and critically acclaimed web site that explores the science behind the news." Check out this recent feature of the Web site, which presents information about a number of harmful invasive species in an entertaining way. The notorious snakehead fish is included in the species lineup, and the related text helps to clear up misconceptions some may have about this invader. While some species and the problems associated with them are described in more detail than others, nearly all descriptions include links to related Web sites that offer much more detailed information.
