About me:

I am Scott Russell, a professor of botany at the University of Oklahoma, which is a comprehensive non-land grant university located in Norman, Oklahoma, where I have worked since completing my doctorate in 1981. I have taught General Botany (BOT 1114), Cell Biology (BOT 3113), Plant Anatomy (BOT 4283), Comparative Vascular Plant Morphology (BOT 5264) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (BOT/MBIO/ZOOL 5364) -- the latter three on a continuing basis. My research area of specialization is sexual plant research. If you are interested, here is my faculty page and my lab research page.

About this site:

This site is my effort to compile useful botany education resources for advanced high school (AP-biology) through collegiate and even research levels. I have rated sites on a 4-star scale emphasizing educational value, completeness and scientific correctness and try to add resources daily during weekdays. Please contact me if you have a nomination. I try to feature each site only once, so please check to see if I have already found it (I do each day).

I started this site on February 7, 1996, with the goal of accumulating botanical resources for the educational community. I wanted to start out slowly, so I just featured one site a day. I thought that sounded like "not too much work". Of course, that was about 9 years ago! Now the site includes some 1863 links. The site actually has two parts: (1) the current month's links (on the home page and (2) a subject index of all past featured sites. The site of the day is available on the home page, by listserv mailing and by RSS

Home Delivery Option:
