News: AAAS 2008 Annual Meeting News Blog
Research, Meeting Reports Fill Blog, Podcasts
Findings, the Science magazine news blog, lives up to its name this week with reports on research presented at the 2008 AAAS annual meeting on pesticide mixtures' impact on salmon and satellites aiding human rights efforts, and podcasts on emerging chemical contaminants, the evolution of morality, and the engineering challenges of the 21st century. But the blog also moves beyond the sessions to single out faces in the crowd for attendee interviews; lets you listen in on a cocktail hour conversation about historic figures in the Royal Society, which celebrates its 350th anniversary in 2010; and tells you five more things you didn't know, this time about AAAS president-elect and climate scientist James McCarthy. Meanwhile, the AAAS radio program Science Update is reporting on the impact climate change may have on reintroducing predators to the Antarctic.
