BERKELEY UNIVERSITY This online museum exhibit traces evolutionary thought as it has developed over time, considering the contributions of scientists and thinkers including Aristotle, Darwin, Wallace, and many others. Under ‘Explore the Theory of Evolution’ the user is introduced to the theory and science behind evolution, the writings of Charles Darwin, and links to a Timeline of Evolutionary Thought, Dinosaur Discoveries, an explanation of Systematics, and a Vertebrate Flight case study of convergent evolution. Under ‘History of Evolutionary Thought’ the user is given a list of 27 key players in the development of evolutionary thought. Each name is hyperlinked to a photograph and biography of that scientist. The site also provides a link to the University of California, Berkeley Museum of Paleontology, Evolution Forum, a website where teachers can access and share information concerning the teaching of evolution. The Panda’s Thumb The Panda’s Thumb is the virtual pub of the University of Ediacara. The patrons gather to discuss evolutionary theory, critique the claims of the antievolution movement, defend the integrity of both science and science education, and share good conversation. Stephen Jay Gould Unofficial Archive Basically to make the ideas of Stephen Jay Gould more accessible to students, teachers, and science enthusiasts of all stripes and forms. Gould did this so well in print, that we hope to extend this influence to the World Wide Web. Alternatively we may be seen as a compliment of sorts to John Catalano’s excellent website The World of Richard Dawkins, which adopts Dawkins’ more conservative approach to biology. Taken together, these pages will give readers a more enriching prospective on the many competing ideas facing the study of biological evolution.
