Abstract

Throughout the 3 May letters by Jerome S. Puskin and Neal S. Nelson (p. 631) and Donald A. Pierce and Dale L. Preston (p. 632), under the heading “Risks from low doses ofradiation”, the unit “Selvin” should have been “sievert.” The error, which Science regrets, was introduced during editing. Also, in the letter by Puskin and Nelson, the word “generation” in line 9 of the next-to-last paragraph should have been “general.”
