AmphibiaWeb is an online system enabling anyone with a Web browser to search and retrieve information relating to amphibian biology and conservation. This site was inspired by the global declines of amphibians, the study of which has been hindered by the lack of multidisplinary studies and a lack of coordination in monitoring, in field studies, and in lab studies.

Resource-adaptive Selection of Strategies in Learning from Worked-Out Examples
Most tasks can be pursued by using different strategies (Logan, 1985; Reder & Schunn, 1998). In this paper we focus on strategies of learning from worked-out examples. Within a resourceoriented framework these different strategies can be classified according to their costs and benefits. These features may determine which strategy will be selected for accomplishing a task in situations with certain resource limitations. We investigate specific hypotheses about strategic adaptations to resource li
