News, Blogs, & Webcasts


DnaTube is similar to YouTube, but covers scientific research, lectures, and seminars in video format. Their goal is "to contribute science by generating a self-growing community who shares their scientific experiences."

Macaulay Library: Sound and Video Catalog

From the Macaulay Library of Cornell's Lab of Ornithology, the Sound and Video Catalog provides access to the world's largest natural sound and video archive of animal behavior. Although birds are favored, many other animals are covered. The site is fully searchable.

Research Blogging identifies and aggregates blog posts about serious peer-reviewed research. The posts are about real developments in science; they are not press releases or news reports. Bloggers who want their posts aggregated must register. RSS feeds are available for all topics or by individual subject.
