EF: Individual amoebas aggregate to form what's called a "motile slug." How they interact to do this may help explain how biological social systems evolve. Image courtesy of Kevin Foster of the Strassmann/Queller group, Rice University.

IOS: Male medium ground finch (Geospiza fortis) feeding on a Scutia spicata fruit, on Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos. Image courtesy of Andrew Hendry, McGill University (photographer) and Jeffrey Podos, University of Massachusetts Amherst.

MCB: Myosin V (green), a cellular motor protein, carries cargo within cells by moving along actin filaments (red). It takes 37-nanometer steps by placing one "foot" over the other, as revealed by a fluorophore tag (rainbow-colored oval). Image permission from Science Vol 300, No. 5628, 27 June 2003.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the National Science Foundation site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
