NBII Biological Resources-Fisheries and Aquatic Resources

URL:far.nbii.gov
  • Well chosen and organized links
  • Nothing significant
NBII's Fisheries and Aquatic Resources page echoes the scheme laid out so well by the Botany site above. Visitors hungry for links on the topic will find an abundance, though, if I may be picky here, not quite as tidily organized as those at the Botany site. There is no shortage of sites, to be sure, and like the Botany site, the links are well chosen. Sub-topic areas include species, databases, management issues, mapping tools, education, publications, and recreation, and each of these is full of useful information. There's also a "Login" area apparently for restricted access, though it was not clear what that was all about. Another winner on a topic of environmental and agricultural importance.

Do you think that Hart-Chabris make a better argument for achieving success than the Chua-Rubenfeld theory?
