Monumental Sculpture from Renaissance Florence
The exhibition at the National Gallery of Art celebrates the completion of the conservation of the statues, performed under the supervision of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, Florence. Freed from centuries-old accumulations of grime, they now reveal much of their original surfaces, remnants of their resplendent gilding, and long-concealed details of their facture. On their return to Florence the statues will be exhibited in the Museum of Orsanmichele.

Discovering Devonian Microfossils
Microfossils are small, fossilized remains of organisms (animal, plant, or protozoa) that require magnification for study. They usually derive from the hard parts of organisms (skeletons, shells, jaws, teeth, seed coverings, etc), and may be imbedded in rock or exist as loose particles within soft substrate. Research studies of microfossils provide insights into ecological and evolutionary relationships among plant and animal communities that existed on earth hundreds of millions of years ago. M

1.12 Conclusion

It is clear that there are tensions in the use of the site, in that it attracts quite different audiences. There are also tensions relating to the number of visitors it is logistically possible to accommodate, and the economics of maintaining a viable revenue income.

Data Sharing in Ecology
In recent decades, biological scientists capacity for generating data has increased at an exponential rate. The need to organize data in ways useful for problem solving has similarly accelerated in the face of global challenges such as climate change, widespread species extinctions, and declines in biodiversity. In light of these trends, virtually every field of ecology would benefit from more comprehensive and systematic documentation and publication of metadata, combined with general availabil
