Natural Science



AHD says:

Some years ago I took quite a few of these because I was doing a course at the OU on geology and we were sent some thin sections to look at. [...]

The depth of field was a fraction of a mm and so these things, although they look OK when projected on a wall, are not pin sharp. These are 35mm by the way, and approx. life size, that is, the slide is just slightly larger than the specimen.

About This Category

This collection is of free images/photos/pictures, sounds, videos, etc from science, technology and nature, including birds, animals and plants, and some from the fields of chemistry, physics and biology. Some exhibits that could be in here may be found in collections with a more specific remit, such as "Flowers" and "Leaves and Greenery".

This is intended to serve, in part, as a teachers' and students' resource.

See also New Scientist for the latest news, The Register's science and tech stories, the EurekAlert!/AAAS Multimedia Gallery, and BioImages - Virtual Field-Guide (UK) for scholarly info.

Also, for attempts to catalogue all known species, see: the Encyclopedia of Life, and Barcode of Life.
