DESCRIPTION: The fifth of nine pages on Life (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in the study of cetaceans and of primates, and resources in ecology. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to additional resources in the life sciences (including life sciences in general, morphology and physiology, and biology education; molecular and cell biology, development, and genetics; biodiversity, systematics and taxonomy, microbiology, and plant biology; and zoology, including the study of vertebrates in general and of mammals in particular), and to resources in the neurosciences (including neurobiology, ethology, psychology, and cognitive science) and the study of the history of life on Earth (palaeobiology, the origin and evolution of life).

KEYWORDS: life; bioscience; biodiversity; organism; cetacea; dolphins; whales; apes; primates; ecology
