Excellent tour of some of the earth's biomes with a clickable map taking you to different regions. Includes climographs (and how to read them). This is one part of the Earth Science Explorer by Wheeling Jesuit University/NASA Classroom of the Future.
   
Contains useful and detailed information on aquatic, desert, forest, grassland, and tundra biomes. Created by a biology class at the University of California, Berkeley.

Check here for teacher developed activities from the 1991 Woodrow Wilson Activities Collection: Natural History and Ecology of Homo Sapiens.
   
A detailed report providing a wealth of data on these important islands, from biodiversity to economy. By members of the Charles Darwin Research Station.
  
For a fabulous collection of photographs of Galapagos animals visit: Gallery
   
Go down to the middle of this page to find an index to about 20 different ecological regions of the United States. Designed by the Sierra Club. 
   
  
Contains essays on the importance of ecology, with a slant towards coastal environments. From the University of Sydney.
   
For more on coastal ecology, check out these research projects: Research
   
Examines a proposed solar evaporation project (for the production of salt) in the Baja region. The site is created by the ones who wish to do the product; so it's biased. However, the issues it brings up--particularly research into how their proposed project will affect the environment, could prove instructive to students exploring environmental issues and public policy.
