Web Sites You Need to Know

As part of the research for the book Horseshoe Crab: A Biography of the Creature Older Than Time, I am also collecting some resources for folks to use in their quest for more knowledge about this unique critter.  Here are some you'll want to check out - particularly now as we begin thinking about all the activity that will be taking place in May and June.
     This is the one!  If you want to know anything about horseshoe crabs and can only check out one site, this is it.  It's got resources, research, information, data, and tons of "goodies" for any "crab-ophile."
     This site features a section of the University of Delaware Sea Grant Program's web site geared to horseshoe crabs.  Cool!
     This is the home page for the U.S. Geological Suvey-coordinated Delaware Bay spawning survey and tagging project.  It includes info. on how you can get involved.
     This is the Maryland Department of Natural Resources "Raising Horseshoe Crabs" project site.  It includes info. on how Maryland schools can get involved.
     This are the Brookdale College Ocean Institute's horseshoe crab pages focusing on horseshoe crab larvae and juveniles.  Lots of great photos here!

Enjoy these sites.  Please let me know if you encounter others - I'd like to share them with as wide an audience as possible.
