Space science in the twenty-first century : imperatives for the decades 1995 to 2015 : report of the study steering group by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

14 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 5,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early in 1984, NASA asked the Space Science Board to undertake a study to determine the principal scientific issues that the disciplines of space science would face during the period from about 1995 to 2015. The findings of this study are published in this volume
Personnel needs and training for biomedical and behavioral research : the 1985 report by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

15 editions published between 1975 and 1981 in English and held by 4,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report for 1977 is the third in a series of annual reports prepared by the Committee on a Study of National Needs for Biomedical and Behavioral Research Personnel in a continuing study. Discussed are the current status of the labor market and the near-term outlook for research personnel in the four broad areas into which the study is organized: basic biomedical sciences, behavioral sciences, clinical sciences, and health services research. Research training needs and issues in nursing research are covered for the first time. Specific recommendations are made about the numbers of individuals to be supported by the research training programs of the National Institutes of Health, the Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental Health Administration, and the Health Resources Administration. Firm recommendations are made for fiscal year (fy) 1979 and tentative goals for fy 1980-81. Of special interest are the results of a survey of a sample of 14,300 of the country's younger biomedical and behavioral scientists, a discussion of the situation of minorities and women in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, and recommendations for some of the policies and administrative aspects of the National Research Service Award Act program.

In the light of evolution by John C Avise( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 2,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the second volume from the In the Light of Evolution series, based on a series of Arthur M. Sackler colloquia, and designed to promote the evolutionary sciences. Each installment explores evolutionary perspectives on a particular biological topic that is scientifically intriguing but also has special relevance to contemporary societal issues or challenges. Individually and collectively, the ILE series aims to interpret phenomena in various areas of biology through the lens of evolution, address some of the most intellectually engaging as well as pragmatically important societal issues of our times, and foster a greater appreciation of evolutionary biology as a consolidating foundation for the life sciences."--Pub. desc

Science, evolution, and creationism by National Academies( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a group of experts assembled by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine explain the fundamental methods of science, document the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, and evaluate the alternative perspectives offered by advocates of various kinds of creationism, including "intelligent design." Science, Evolution, and Creationism explores the many fascinating inquiries being pursued that put the science of evolution to work in preventing and treating human disease, developing new agricultural products, and fostering industrial innovations. The book also presents the scientific and legal reasons for not teaching creationist ideas in public school science classes." "Mindful of school board battles and recent court decisions, Science, Evolution, and Creationism shows that science and religion should be viewed as different ways of understanding the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other and that the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policymakers, and parents who seek to understand the basis of evolutionary science, this publication will be an essential resource."--Jacket
Science and creationism : a view from the National Academy of Sciences by National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)( )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planet, and life evolved and continue to evolve. Yet the teaching of evolution to schoolchildren is still contentious. In Science and Creationism, The National Academy of Sciences states unequivocally that creationism has no place in any science curriculum at any level. Briefly and clearly, this booklet explores the nature of science, reviews the evidence for the origin of the universe and earth, and explains the current scientific understanding of biological evolution. This edition includes new insights from astronomy and molecular biology. Attractive in presentation and authoritative in content, Science and Creationism will be useful to anyone concerned about America's scientific literacy: education policymakers, school boards and administrators, curriculum designers, librarians, teachers, parents, and students

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adviser, teacher, role model, friend : on being a mentor to students in science and engineering by Institute of Medicine (U. S.)( )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide is meant to assist mentors and advisors in understanding how they might help students identify and respond to the challenges of becoming scientists or engineers. The guide--intended for faculty members, teachers, administrators, and others who advise and mentor students of science and engineering--attempts to summarize features that are common to successful mentoring relationships. The goal is to encourage mentoring habits that are in the best interests of both parties in the relationship. The chapters define mentoring, explain the different roles the mentor plays with students (faculty advisor, career advisor, skills consultant, role model), makes recommendations for improving the quality of mentoring, and provides resources. Within each chapter, the text contains steps to improve mentoring, examples of poor and good mentoring, the context of mentoring, a sample of nonacademic careers in science and engineering, and chapter summaries. (Contains 50 references.) (Ask)

The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary
