Looking for a comprehensive Web reference on the world's environmental laws? Then mosey over to ECOLEX, a storehouse of information on treaties, national and international court decisions, and legislation sponsored by the United Nations and the World Conservation Union. Browse the records to learn about the latest German ordinance governing genetically modified foods, for example, or to find out whether South Africa has signed any treaties to protect imperiled seals (yes, the 1972 Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Seals). Entries provide either abstracts or full-text documents.
