Dichotomous Key for Conifers
This reference tool allows students to identify a coniferous tree species by making a series of guided decisions about shape, size, and arrangement of its needles. Ideally, students' specimens will be twigs that include the tree's reproductive cone or fruit. The key, which includes only species that are native to the U.S., is available in three formats:an interactive key on the AMNH's Web site, an interactive key that can be downloaded to your computer (available as a self-extracting stuffed fil
Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: Rotating Globe
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the
