The Field Book Project What is a field book? Field books or field notes are primary source documents that describe the events leading up to and including the collection of specimens or observations during field research.

Evolution Extension: Hominoid Drawings The seven drawings available for downloading from this site, in PDF format, were drawn by Ryan Scott McCullar*, for Martin Nickels at Illinois State University. Each one is a full scale profile, identified, and with a metric ruler for convenience (and to confirm the scale). If you can use a laser printer (e.g. at your district office, school, or local library), your results should be of very good quality, although inkjet printouts should be quite usable. A fast internet connection would also facilitate your downloading success. Each drawing requires about 100K of memory, so, in order to speed up the download time, they are available separately, and must be downloaded as seven separate items. To retrieve each item, just click on its name (in dark blue print) below.

Biology Animations Carnegie Mellon's Office of Technology for Education and Department of Biological Sciences create multimedia materials for teaching and learning Biology. After an analysis of a number of Biology courses was performed to identify when and how shared concepts where taught, a team of biologists, media programmers, and learning experts came together to create animations designed to improve understanding of some of the main concepts taught in Modern Biology and Biochemistry.

Reflections I quite like making posters (graphorisms, if you will), to collect up ideas from readings, articles, science and the like. I find orgnising the thoughts into something visual and attractive helps clarify them for myself and they add a splash fo colour to otherwise texty blogposts. I often attach them to tweets, and these tend to generate more interaction that text links alone. I usually use the Creative Commons search to find suitably-licensed Flickr images (if I don’t have my own). I edit them in GoogleSlides, using a partly-transparent text box at the bottom for citations and the ColorZilla Chrome colour picker add-on to match the colour palette. Sometimes I use to remove backgrounds.
