Saturday, July 29 would have been Robert Connick''s 100th birthday. During #WWII he devised separation techniques for the fundamental chemical properties of #plutonium. In doing so, he revealed plutoniums complicated oxidation-reduction proprieties as well as the existence of its many complex ions. Much of his work was characterized by his originality in developing new methods of investigation.

PNAS is here! A juvenile capuchin monkey observes a skilled adult male eating a nut it has just broken using a hammerstone. Articles in the Sackler Colloquium on the Extension of Biology Through Culture explore social learning and cultural transmission in humans and nonhuman animals as well as the interplay between cultural and genetic evolution. See the Introduction to the Sackler Colloquium by Andrew Whiten et al. at www.pnas.org.

In the late 1800s Edward Drinker Cope was a leader in paleontology and ichthyology. You may know him from the Bone Wars, his race to collect fossils collection against Othniel Charles Marsh, but he also divided living fishes and fish fossils and into classes and subclasses. Many of his orders and suborders were then adopted by the British Museum.
