ActionBioscience.org is a non-commercial, educational web site created to promote bioscience literacy by examining issues that will:
-motivate the public to play an active role in bioscience education
-show how developments in bioscience research can affect everyone
-promote an understanding of biogeography and the biodiversity of life
-engage the public to reflect on the relationship between human activity and the natural course of evolution
-promote global ecological awareness
advance formal and informal bioscience education
-encourage students to pursue studies in the biosciences
To meet these goals, the web site provides articles by scientists, science educators, and science students on issues related to seven bioscience challenges: environment, biodiversity, genomics, biotechnology, evolution, new frontiers in science, and bioscience education. In addition, the web site provides educators with original lessons and resources to enhance bioscience teaching. Up-to-date external links are provided at the bottom of each article to help the reader "learn more" about or "get involved" in the issue. Selected articles are translated into Spanish.
Our intended audience is the concerned public, educators, students, and science professionals. We welcome suggestions, as well as feedback on posted material.
