Bugwood Network Help

Hello and welcome to the Bugwood Network. The Work Group gathers, creates, maintains and promotes the use of digital information as resources to enhance educational activities in the fields of entomology, forestry, forest health, natural resources, and other areas of agriculture. This web site contains management information, publications, videos and other products generated by the Work Group in a convenient and consistent manner. In order to ensure the optimum use of our site, this page provides general information on navigation, web browers and plugs-ins needed.

Hardware and Software Requirements

This web page is best viewed under Netscape Navigator 4.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0. As newer versions of these and other browsers are released and become used then the site will be adapted to benefit from their newer features while also ensuring capability with older browsers. This page was designed to be viewed on a monitor with a graphics card set at 800x600 resolution with thousands of viewable colors. In Windows 95, 98 or 2000 this can be set under the Control Panel, Display Properties, Settings. If your computer is only capable of 640x480 resolution or 256 colors then the site is still usable except some colors in the images may be distorted.

Getting Around

Getting around Bugwood is easy. Each page is designed to help you get to where you want to go and find the information you need as quickly as possible. Every page of the site has a consistent look. Our logo (four converging arrows) is located in the upper left hand corner of every page represents the coming together of various disciplines and technologies in working toward a common goal. Across the top of each page of the different sections is the title of the page, the web address and a quick jump between sections of the site.
