An introduction to the cross-cultural study of ethnic and national identity. We examine the concept of social identity, and consider the ways in which gendered, linguistic, religious, and ethno-racial identity components interact.

Science Bulletins: Suburban Growth Stresses Streams
Ecologists have established a long-term study of streams that flow through urban, suburban, rural, and forested areas of western North Carolina. Their goal is to observe how water quality and different species—from algae to insects to fish—change when roads and buildings are constructed near streams. The work will also enable scientists to forecast how streams in forested areas respond as new development encroaches. Such predictions could help inform land-use decisions by public and private
