The Division of Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History

A real find for anyone interested in prehistoric life, the American Museum of Natural History's Division of Paleontology site brings the ancient to life. Easily accessible, the site presents numerous materials, from images of the fossil record to artists' representations of the prehistoric world and its wilder inhabitants, the dinosaurs. For those interested in the people behind the scenes, as well as in the sites of prehistoric exploration themselves, the resource presents a wealth of information on paleontologists at the front line, including slide shows on specific voyages of discovery. One in particular takes visitors to a rich site in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. Also not to be missed is the presentation of one of the best preserved specimens of what just might prove to be a missing link -- a curiously feathered, earth-bound reptile some 130 million years old.
