I like the book The Major Transitions in Evolution.
It discusses big evolutionary transitions from perspectives of hierarchical organization and information.
Advanced book, requires some pre-existing level of knowledge of evolution.

Take a look at this website, it has some really neat Clips, Stills, and Slides of small life forms:

http://www.cytographics.com/


Especially nice is the video of Xenopus (toad) eggs. The video illustrate, how perfectly times embyonic development is, since three three eggs were fertilized at the same time and develop at the same speed.

It is cool, since it is a time lapse videa which shows the process from first cell division all the way of the hatching of the tadpole. Too bad the resolution is not so nice, I've got in on a CDROM which is 100x better.

I clicked on the website and it seems they have server problems. I also wanted access to high resolution images. I also clicked on CONTACT US and that did not work either. Do you have their contact details?

You might check the date(s) of the post(s) before leaping to too many conclusions.

Looks like the website is still up and the contact us should still work but you need to copy and paste the address into your email program. info[at]cytographics.com

Looking for immunology animations

I'm looking for a site with immunology animations that would be appropriate for students that are either non biology majors or have a very basic understanding of biology. I've looked at a few sites you guys have listed (some very cool sites) but haven't found one that gives a good general overview of the immune response cascade. If you know of good site please let me know!
Thanks
Try this: http://highered.mheducation.com/sit...chapter24/animation__the_immune_response.html

It's not comprehensive, but other websites have great animations, but you must purchase the textbook, which is rather pricey, like this one:
