A few selected transitional fossils "All species undergo gradual change over time, but in the fossil record we find evidence of some changes that are particularly striking. This website is dedicated to some of these so-called transitional fossils."

Added a link to the "Miscellaneous" section of the OP for "Gene Expression and Regulation". This is a page from the "Scitable" area of the Nature website which has an excellent introductory essay on the way that genes function in an organism, with links to a large selection of articles dealing with more specific aspects of the topic.

Wow, Chris...this is the most comprehensive treasure trove of information on evolution I've ever come across. It should be organized into an ebook, or something. Everything I can think of to research, I have found here.

Well done.

I agree, that is very awesome.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

That is a pretty neat site. I have some issues with the 'tree of life' approach to evolution but that site is still cool.
