An article exploring the use of visual datasets as an educational aid for biology students. 

Article abstract:  

Have you considered the use of biological images as populations to be sampled? Visual datasets allow students to practice necessary visual skills and explore visual approaches to problem solving within specific areas of biology. Examples of visual datasets being used in undergraduate courses as well as new visual datasets are presented with an introduction to some of the visual learning strategies. Proactive design of visual learning experiences within the biology curriculum is urged.
