Summary

The Smithsonian Institution plans to reorganize its research activities--but it's still not quite clear how. On 7 May, Secretary Lawrence Small received a go-ahead from his governing board of regents to consolidate and streamline science at the 155-year-old institution. But one of two facilities slated to close in Small's original plan--the zoo's Conservation and Research Center--will remain open, and Small and the regents will set up a commission to advise him on how best to proceed with the rest of his reforms.
