HHHmmmmm for science based computer teaching aids there area number of
ways to go. Contact some large distribution companies and ask them for a list
of acedemic tools. Hypercell is a great teaching aid for the college level
and younger student. Not only does it give definitions but it also shows
mechanisms via a cartoon/graphic screen. You might also want to check
on many of the CD rom systems....new disks are being produced every few weeks
and they have volumns now which illustrate zoology and many ecological
theories..
