Consequences are everywhere, including on the Web. Here are a few selected websites and blogs from among a multitude of worthy e-resources--educational, entertaining, or both.
Here's an accessible article (a pdf) by Pitzer College Professor David Moore on the systems approach to nature-and-nurture:
I cited David's excellent book The Dependent Gene in The Science of Consequences.
Yale Professor and parenting book author Alan Kazdin's blog entries for slate.com from 2008 to 2010 are uniformly helpful, enjoyable, and soundly research-based. Most are coauthored with Carlo Rotella.
Entrepeneur and author Aubrey Daniels' blog
on positive management:
Association for Science in Autism Treatment:
Both of these sites cover positive reinforcement-based methods for horses, fish, and a variety of other animals. (Yes, dogs too.)
There's a library of useful articles (and much more) on pioneer Karen Pryor's website:
Mary Hunter blogs about clicker training. Don't miss Mary's re-post of Barbara Ray's contribution elsewhere about the hermit crabs that spontaneously began asking for training sessions. (Yes, hermit crabs.)
There are so many fantastic positive-reinforcement-based videos

Fernando Silva's impressive young "clicker sheep" learning targeting, then handling canine agility obstacles with aplomb:
"Useful Dog Tricks 2 performed by Jesse the Jack Russell Terrier"
- clicker training by Heather Brook, a 21-year-old clicker wizard who studied Karen Pryor's website (above).
It's amazing what the agility trainers do with positive reinforcement - and the dogs love it. Just search online and enjoy.
