Fellows of the Academy of Science are scholars whose focus is primarily on their subject areas or core discipline. That is why the Bulletin of the Academy of Science is potentially so important; it reaches across the disciplines, and can bring important news about national activities to the broader scientific and scholarly community. Read the Note from the Editor>> 
Les membres de l'Acad�mie des sciences sont des universitaires qui s'int�ressent principalement � leurs propres domaine ou discipline fondamentale. C'est la raison pour laquelle le Bulletin de l'Acad�mie des sciences est potentiellement si important; sa port�e s'�tend � plusieurs disciplines, et ainsi, le Bulletin peut apporter � l'ensemble de la collectivit� scientifique et universitaire des nouvelles significatives sur les activit�s nationales.

Two years ago, the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced that it would be closing the Experimental Lakes Area as part of a budget-balancing move.  The government first announced that the ELA was no longer needed, and that similar science could be done at its other facilities. Never mind that the ELA had a license to perform whole-ecosystem experiments that were not possible at any other facility in the world, or that the station had the longest monitoring record for lakes and streams in Canada.  Read more >>
