Princeton Global Science, Issue 7

After a nice long Thanksgiving break, we’re back in our offices and it is time for yet another issue of Princeton Global Science. Features of this issue include:

The first installment of Crossley Unplugged, a series of videos from birder and nature photographer Richard Crossley. In this short video, he answers the all-important question: “Where to go birding?” As we gear up for the publication of The Crossley ID Guide in March 2011, we will post many more videos from Richard that address practical birding concerns as well as provide hints to improve your identification skills.

Physical Sciences editor Ingrid Gnerlich gives us an overview of the series Princeton Primers in Climate, including a new book from David Archer on The Global Carbon Cycle.

Bobbi S. Low speaks with Earth Sciences editor Alison Kalett about the “active-learning approach” used in her new textbook An Introduction to Methods and Models in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology (co-authored with Stanton Braude).

Mathematics Editor Vickie Kearn reflects on how Ford and Fulkerson’s Flows in Networks came back in print and also speaks with Sep Kamvar, author of Numerical Algorithms for Personalized Search in Self-organizing Information Networks, about the importance of PageRank in internet searches.
