The University of California system has many research institutes spread across campuses like Davis, Berkeley, Irvine, and others. This helpful website brings together timely news stories about their work, along with multimedia presentations, personal profiles, links to external media coverage, and so on. On the homepage, visitors can look over recent profiles or look through the "Science Today" area, which includes brief audio profiles of various research projects on atmospheric science, animal husbandry, and more. One rather aesthetically pleasing section features the Image of the Day. Here visitors can check out vibrant photos of the curious willow catkin, bracket fungi, and the Northwest crimson columbine. Finally, the Videos area includes dozens of videos that look into a range of topics from the interaction between snakes and android-style squirrels to oysters to urban water systems.
