Summary

In science news around the world, conservation biologists and the federal Bureau of Land Management are wrangling over protection of the greater sage grouse in Wyoming, an independent report finds that France's research funding system is too "rigid," scientists discovered six forgotten vials of smallpox virus in a storage room at the National Institutes of Health, U.S. lawmakers have accused a Chinese scientist of conspiring to smuggle patented corn seed to China, and more. Also, physicists have identified a "hotspot" source of ultra–high-energy cosmic rays in the sky, and an Indonesian scientist is pursuing a controversial archaeological excavation of what he says is the world's oldest civilization.
