BugGuide.net is a great spot to find information about a variety of critters. The site contains images, complete taxonomy, wors cited and other references. This could be a

great tool in the classroom or at the library. Those libraries with social bookmark sharing should add it to their science, grade school or whatever lists!

The site is hosted by Iowa State University Entymology and carries the following disclaimer pertaining to authority:

Disclaimer: Dedicated naturalists volunteer their time and resources here to provide this service. We strive to provide accurate information, but we are mostly just amateurs attempting to make sense of a diverse natural world. If you need expert professional advice, contact your local extension office.

Anyhow, I really like this site!

Interesting bug site. I don’t know if you have come across the Ohio State horticulture site but they have a decent reference collection for seeds. It’s mostly modern North American crops and weeds stuff and it is certainly not a complete reference collection, but it’s certainly a useful guide. Plus they have a test yourself section for beginniners and advanced seed specialist.
