Web Site of the Week: Dinobase

Created by the University of Bristol, the site includes news from the world of paleontology, blogs, photo galleries. First-time visitors won’t want to miss the Database area. Here they can search for their favorite dinosaur by genera or species, and click on the magnifying glass icon to the right of the results for a pop-up page including statistics and illustrations. Moving on, the Interactive Forum is a great place to post questions about the dinosaur world, and look through past replies offered by others. The homepage is full of other intriguing areas, such as links to information about the world of burrowing dinosaurs and a thoughtful answer to the question “Did birds evolve from dinosaurs?” The Gallery area includes works by noted scientific illustrators Jim Robins and John Sibbick. Finally, the site’s DinoKids area is perfect for the younger set, and it includes jokes, puzzles, and information about where to go fossil hunting. [KMG]
