Given its proximity to numerous large and biologically diverse ecosystems, it is not surprising to learn that the Florida Museum of Natural History has developed such a lovely website that corrals a great deal of interesting and interactive materials on the study of fish. From the homepage, visitors can dive into the ten or so topical headings, include those dealing with sharks, tropical fish research, South Florida, and an amazing ichthyology collection. The newly developed South Florida section is a must-see, as it provides a strong introduction to the complex aquatic environments that make the region so unique, along with providing a glossary of terms, a few quizzes, and several word search puzzles for the younger set. Overall, the educational material presented here is very strong, and would prove to be a nice complement to younger students' classroom work on marine biology in particular.
