Summary

Readers offer views on a number of topics: “[R]esidents of Alaska will find … benefits” from a “world-class” ionosphere research facility (below); publishing raw genetic sequences will “not likely” thwart the patenting and commercialization of gene products; to avoid “victimization” of unknowing authors, journals should insist that coauthors consult one another before their names appear on a paper; the challenge of predicting the “behavior of ecological systems” should be “tackled vigorously”; “flexible funds” should be made available to medical schools for the “support [of] their academic objectives”; and international support for the “biodiversity information associated with natural history museum collections” should be made more widely available.
