Summary

In science news around the world, the results of this week's Canadian elections cheer scientists, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency releases rules to tighten emissions restrictions on potent greenhouse gases known as hydrofluorocarbons, scientists add new apps to Apple's open-source health research platform ResearchKit, U.S. researchers prepare to launch the first national chimpanzee brain resource, the Royal Society in the United Kingdom celebrates the 350th anniversary of scientist and amateur artist Robert Hooke's Micrographia, and more. Also, new research presented at the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting suggests that a specimen thought by some to be a species dubbed Nanotyrannus was really just a juvenile T. rex after all. And a pollen-covered honey bee eye takes first prize in the annual Nikon Small World photography competition.
