In June 2006, seventeen scientists and educators selected by the National
Academies, the Academy of Sciences of Iran, and the Académie des Sciences
of France held a workshop at the estate of the Fondation des Treilles in
France, to discuss issues concerning the role of science in the development
of modern societies. This location was an idyllic setting for relaxed conversations,
while simplifying travel and visa arrangements for the participants.
In October 2003 the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and
the National Research Council (NRC) entered into a cooperative agreement that
called for the NRC to examine selected aspects of U.S. foreign assistance activities—
primarily the programs of USAID—that have benefited or could benefit from
access to strong science, technology, and medical capabilities in the United States
The late Neogene (the period between − 14 and − 2.4 Ma) is one of the most
interesting phases in understand the present conWguration of terrestrial
ecosystems. It was during this time that the change took place from the
middle Miocene dominant subtropical forests that stretched across southern
Europe and western Asia to a more open but still wooded biotope that
now prevails in warm–temperate areas. This change in vegetation, which
strongly aVected the composition of mammalian faunas, seems to be linked
to the rapid spread of grasses around 8–10 Ma ago....
The mountainous area occupies three fourth of the total area of Binh Dinh Province. The potential of landuse is very large. However, under the influence of irrational exploitation and natural disasters in the past, the land resource has declined, thus leading to the decline of forest resource. Furthermore, the increase of unused land and bare hills along with the decrease in the cultivated area seriously influenced on the ecological environment as well as the socio-economic development.

This report reflects the commitment of the U.S. scientific, engineering, and
health communities to help our country respond to the challenges made evident
by September 11. It is a contribution from the National Academies—the National
Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine,
and National Research Council—which initiated this critical effort and paid
for it. But this report is also a contribution to the nation from many distinguished
individuals, each of whom dedicated a great deal of time to the production of the
This report is a product of the Committee on USGS Water Resources
Research, which provides consensus advice to the Water Resources Division
(WRD) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) on scientific, research, and
programmatic issues. The committee is one of the groups that works under the
auspices of the Water Science and Technology Board (WSTB) of the National
Research Council. The committee considers a variety of topics that are
important scientifically and programmatically to the USGS and the nation and
issues reports when appropriate....

The focus of this study is positive feedback in one-on-one tutoring, its computational modeling, and its application to the design of more effective Intelligent Tutoring Systems. A data collection of tutoring sessions in the domain of basic Computer Science data structures has been carried out. A methodology based on multiple regression is proposed, and some preliminary results are presented. A prototype Intelligent Tutoring System on linked lists has been developed and deployed in a collegelevel Computer Science class. ...
UNDERSTANDING MANAGERIAL COACHING: THE ROLE OF MANAGER ATTRIBUTES AND SKILLS IN EFFECTIVE COACHING One must live while conducting research. I thank my family and friends for putting
up with me these last five years and for helping me to stay sane throughout. I hope that I
have not been too unbearable.
Much of my graduate career was supported under a National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellowship. In addition, the research in Chapters 1 and 2 was partially
supported by the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at U.C....
Few of us can any longer keep up with the flood of scientific literature, even
in specialized subfields. Any attempt to do more and be broadly educated
with respect to a large domain of science has the appearance of tilting at
windmills. Yet the synthesis of ideas drawn from different subjects into new,
powerful, general concepts is as valuable as ever, and the desire to remain
educated persists in all scientists.
Muterials science emerged in USA, some time in thc carly 1950s. That phrase
denoted a new scientific concept, born out of metallurgy, and this book is devoted to
the emergence, development and consequences of that concept, in the US and
elsewhere. Just who first coined the phrase is not known, but it is clear that by 1956
a number of senior research scientists had acquired the habit of using it.
This is not to say that economics has a monopoly when it comes to fac-tors that affect science or in providing a lens for examining science. Other
disciplines— and their foci— contribute considerably to the study of science.
Sociology, for example, contributes a great deal to the understanding of how
science is or ga nized and the reward structure of science. It is also not to say
that science is the only factor that contributes to economic growth. Politics
and values, for example, clearly play important roles....
Challenges to sustaining the productivity of oceanic and coastal fisheries
have become more critical and complex as these fisheries reach the upper
limits to ocean harvests. In addition, it is now clear that we are managing
interactive and dynamic food webs rather than sets of independent single-species
The aim of this book is to provide an overview on the importance of stoichiometry in the materials science field. It presents a collection of selected research articles and reviews providing up-to-date information related to stoichiometry at various levels. Being materials science an interdisciplinary area, the book has been divided in multiple sections, each for a specific field of applications. The first two sections introduce the role of stoichiometry in nanotechnology and defect chemistry, providing examples of state-of-the-art technologies. ...
