The Nature Publishing Group has created a new, free learning resource for the public called Scitable.
While still in its infant stage, it looks to be a promising general resource discussing topics such as animal behavior and physiological ecology. At present, most of the work centers on Genetics and Ecology, but as time goes on the site should expand to include a wide variety of other STEM-related topics. The content is primarily for the undergraduate level, in both content and readability.
