Water Transport in Plants: Anatomy and Physiology
This investigation presents a condensation of two, 3-hour laboratory sessions. In one phase, we adopt a classic dye uptake experiment to determine the path of upward water transport in a detached shoot. Photography of stem thin sections taken with a digital video camera aided by compound and stereomicroscopes and a computer significantly enhance the presentation of observations and their interpretation.

Asian Security Seminar - The Economic-Security Nexus and East Asian Regionalism
East Asia is becoming more regionalized. But it is doing so in fits and starts: two steps forward and one step back. At present, few Asian governments are bonded through an overarching regional vision; many are highly distrustful of one another; and the region evinces little of the sustained political leadership and conviction necessary to create the robust institutions that might deepen and regularize state-to-state cooperation across a range of complex issues. Yet even with its many halts and
