"Vamos Conhecer Melhor os Anelídeos"

O primeiro e-book da saga “Colecção BioRede”, publicado em Julho de 2006. dedicado a este grupo de Invertebrados, tão longe da vista, mas tão importante na história do nosso Planeta. Os que desejam introduzir o multimédia nas suas estratégias de ensino/aprendizagem e obter uma cópia, é favor contactarem os autores. Fotografia – Brânquais do poliqueta Diopatra neapolitana (nome vulgar, na região de Aveiro: Casulo). Versão on-line em http://www.biorede.pt, módulo “Diversidade Animal”.

"Vamos Conhecer Melhor os Equinodermes"

Para todos, mas feito a pensar nos que querem saber mais sobre este grupo de animais, ou ilustar as suas aulas de Biodiversidade com recursos multimédia. E-book interactivo da “Colecção BioRede”, acabadinho de sair (Novembro 2006). Ilustração, animações, fotografia, vídeo e, naturalmente, textos explicativos. Fotografia – Madreporito, pedicelários e pápulas, na estrela-do-mar Asterias rubens. Versão on-line em http://www.biorede.pt, módulo “Diversidade Animal”.
