ReefQuest Expeditions This is undoubtedly the best shark site on the web. It is run by author, artist, and marine biologist Richard Martin and his wife Anne Martin, also a marine biologist. Besides providing information on their company, ReefQuest Expeditions, which offers marine-oriented educational trips around the world, the site features in-depth, exhaustive and interesting information on all sharks, within a taxonomically-arranged framework. There are also many articles on aspects of shark biology and behaviour, as well as links, book reviews and more. Making things even better, the site is profusely illustrated with Rick's own paintings and line drawings. This is a must-see website, and will provide hours of fascinating browsing.

* The American Elasmobranchology Society . A nice little HP from the scientific community at the AES. - "All About Sharks" is a SCUBA diver’s research on sharks. It provides shark stories, records, and accounts of shark attacks. The page also provides information on many different species of sharks. This is a great page for anyone who is fascinated by sharks. -"The Shark Research Page" contains data from the commercial shark fishery observer, the IUCN/SSC shark specialist group, and international shark attack file. This page may be used by researchers and scientists, but is not difficult for the average "internet surfer" to read and enjoy. This page provides a lot of good information pertinent to Lemonick’s article. In addition, several species are highlighted with lots of information, and many web links are provided. -The "Sharks-Information and Conservation Page" has a variety of information, including shark habits, physiology, and shark attack information. This page is written so an average reader will not have much difficulty understanding it. This page also has many fun features, which people of all ages will enjoy. Some of the articles highlight the information in Lemonick’s article, "Its Humans Not Sharks Who Are Natures Most Fearsome Predators," very well; the rest is just for fun. -This is an informative and fun shark page. Younger readers who are exploring the world of sharks will find all sorts of educational activities on "Shark Safari" by National Geographic. Some of the information in Lemonick’s article for Time magazine can be seen first hand here. Particularly how the next generations are being educated about sharks.  - "Sharks predators of the deep" is jammed full of shark pictures, statistics, and other info. An interesting feature is the search program, that the page will do for shark related topics. This is a page that will be easy for the average "net surfer" to understand and enjoy. The author of this page, V.W.H. Koctze, will allow you to expand on the information in Lemonick’s article in any direction.  -"The Great White Death" provides a quick look at sharks, and their attacks. There are several graphic photos of shark attack victims. If you can handle this you will learn about their attack behavior. However, this page is limited and will only tell you some of Lemonick’s findings. This page also provides several links and is easy for the average person to read. - This is an easy-to-read and understand page, written by a student of the California Academy of Sciences. Readers at or above a high school reading level will not have any difficulty with this page. This page highlights the main ideas of Lemonick’s article. Also, provided here are several other shark links worthy of exploration. - "The Pelagic Shark Research Foundation" is a page with the purpose of heightening public awareness of shark conservation. To achieve its purpose, this page is written for the average reader. This page does not go over most of Lemonick’s studies; however, Lemonick’s conservation studies can be widely expanded upon in this page. "Shark Week" of "Discovery Channel Online" is written for shark enthusiasts. Many of these activities are written with the younger reader in mind. This page tries to answer everyone’s questions about these creatures. In particular, this article highlights Lemonick’s theme of educating the next generation. An interesting feature in this page allows you to type questions in and has them answered. -Although "Nova Online Adventure" is from a reliable source like Nova, it only shows a broad view of sharks. This is a good page for a person without much scientific knowledge to go through and pick up some information. This will touch on all of Lemonick’s themes but not expand upon them. -Although "The Shark Page" of "Stephen Bilson’s Main Scuba Site" is currently under construction, this page will have lots of information on sharks, including specific information on over twenty species of sharks. However, this page is more of a shark enthusiast page for the average internet surfer, and will not cover in much depth Lemonick’s findings. - This is a very informative shark page. Almost all of Lemonick’s findings are highlighted here. This page is written for people with considerable knowledge of science, but is not difficult to read. Some interesting features include shark studies of particular species, and a divers log of shark research.
