Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum digital library adds new features

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has long maintained a public online digital library featuring photographs of plants and animals: click here.

If you click on the photos, that will bring up a short explanation of the natural history for many of the subjects.

There is now a new feature: digital zoom, where you can zoom in and out on photos of selected plants, animals, minerals, and biotic communities: click here. With this feature you can see some awesome close-ups.

 Give it a try. Then come out to the museum to see the real thing.
