Enter the new Online Testing Center for Department of Biology's recent multiple choice exams in interactive format!    The Web address for the Biology Department server is http://fig.cox.miami.edu .     Course materials and interactive examinations can be found on the Biology "Home Page" under the heading "Courses".

 Some really hot topics, i.e.,  Scientific significa  of absolutely no consequence;  It's just for the pure joy of reading some of the vast biological trivia and unimportant facts that are published everyday..... read and enjoy.

  Internet Biology Links ... a collection of useful and interesting web pages that deal with a number of biology topics that can help a student gather more detailed information about some of the courses topics. Please let Dr. Mallery is any of hte links are no longer active. You can send an E-mail to Dr. Mallery by clicking on the address below.

"Friday 13th Madness"

Quietly meditating
On that Ominous Night
With the Moon Full and Bright
Feasts and Merriment above
Screaming alarms outside
Houses fighting
Shattered glass
Beaten disappointment
For a Mind gone Mad


Now a Creature of Night
Protects the Door
While watching All
Waiting for the End
For the Madness to Begin


Ladies in Waiting
In my Domain
For the Chaos left


Now I am all alone
Watching stars
As gentle imagination
Once touched my skin
