"Animal Cruelty--Behind the Scenes" (Zoe Weil) describes sources of laboratory animals. "Doing without Dissection" (Juliana Texley) discusses objections over classroom dissection and its role in current biology curricula. "Dissection: Paving the Path To Vivisection" (Andy Breslin) discusses ethical principles that link dissection to vivisection. "Dissection & the Law" (Jonathan Balcombe) explores dissection legislation in the United States. "Science Fairs" (F. Barbara Orlans) describes science fair projects that have used animals and suggests humane project alternatives. Resource lists describe computer simulations; charts, models, and other media for animal studies; as well as printed information about dissection alternatives. (PVD)
