Default Hunting for Plant and Animal Information Just Got Easier

Hunting for Plant and Animal Information Just Got Easier

USGS Release: September Science Picks -- Hot News about Cool Science (9/2/2009)
excerpt from above:
Do you want an easy, efficient way to sift through massive amounts of online information about plants and animals? A new search engine from the USGS National Biological Information Infrastructure is just the ticket. The NBII has always been a comprehensive source for information on the nation’s plants and animals. Now, its revamped search engine offers a variety of new features, including the ability to search multiple databases at the same time and the ability to return results that arrive in “clusters,” or automatically generated categories associated with the search topic. For example, a search on “grizzly bear” turns up cluster topics like “endangered species,” “park science” and “grizzly bear management planning” that point to new areas of inquiry. To try the search engine yourself and get a sense of its power, visit http://www.nbii.gov. For more information, contact Jim Erwin at jerwin@usgs.gov or (703) 648-4283.
The tendency of man's nature to good is like the tendency of water to flow downwards.

Great site! Thanks for posting! Better than Google News!
