Spiders: We'd Probably All Be Dead Without Them
This BioBulletin Web site takes a close look at spiders, the planet's number one carnivore. The site includes text, videos, photographs, and interviews with key scientists. The Introduction paints a picture of what life would be like on our planet without spiders. The Vital Spider takes a look at the variety and population of spiders in the world, their important contributions, and scientific attempts to create "biosilk."About Spiders is an in-depth look at everything from spider anatomy and fee
An Arm and A Leg
Students will design and build a prototype of an artificial limb using a simple syringe system as an introduction to bioengineering. Students will determine which substance water (liquid) or air (gas) will make the appendage more efficient.

Microscopy of Air/Water Biofilms in the Undergraduate Laboratory: A Simple Collection Kit with Multi
Naturally occurring air/water interface biofilms are ubiquitous, but largely unexplored. They provide ideal samples for introductory microscopy and microbiology. This activity introduces a simple method for collecting samples from nature or the lab and gives detailed instructions on preparing a simple collecting kit and optimum viewing with student microscopes. Useful features of this activity include: the ideal nature of a wide assortment of ubiquitous air/water interface biofilms for microscop
