You could be sitting by a pond listening to a soothing summer evening concert sung by frogs. But you are actually in front of a computer, in the comfort of your home, office, or classroom, without annoying mosquitoes or biting flies.
This performance is an interactive multimedia CD-ROM, the Digital Frog 2 (DF2), which is an anatomically precise computer simulation of a frog. DF2 has three segments: dissection, anatomy, and ecology. The anatomy segment compares amphibian and human anatomy and occasionally ventures delightfully into molecular details of a body part. Structure-function relationships are emphasized.
