From skulls to forensics, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History has something for everyone interested in exploring all aspects of this brave, vast world. Its online offerings are a thrill and include image collections, online exhibits, video clips, and podcasts. This last area has some great offerings, including short films on Lyme disease, a tour through the museum's celebrated "Age of Reptiles" mural, and a tribute to Charles Darwin's work. Moving on, the Online Exhibits area includes over two dozen exhibits, including Return of the 17-Year Cicadas! and Black Holes at Yale. Visitors shouldn't miss the lovely Connecticut Biodiversity area, which offers up the excellent Connecticut Butterfly Atlas Project and the very cool Go Botany! application. This last find features a very helpful Simple ID Key that helps interested parties identify over 1,200 common native and naturalized New England plants.
