Amphibiaweb

“AmphibiaWeb is an online system enabling anyone online 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. We hope AmphibiaWeb will encourage a shared vision for the study of global amphibian declines and the conservation of remaining amphibians.”–From the website.

“The Skeptiseum website hosted by CSICOP, the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal. The mission of CSICOP is to investigate and critically examine paranormal and pseudoscientific claims: the former being reported phenomena that seem beyond the range of nature and normal human experience; the latter being claims that are alleged to be based on science, but have no scientific evidence in their support whatsoever. A skeptical approach is not dismissive but analytical, demanding that there be sufficient evidence in order for a claim to be accepted.”–From the website.
