International exchange of expertise is in the interest of American science and security
The first American Naturalist appeared in March 1867. In a countdown to the 150th anniversary, the editors have solicited short commentaries on articles from the past issues that deserve a second look.
The graduate student council has a webpage: http://asngrads.com/asn-graduate-student-council/
The purpose of this site is to facilitate interaction within the ASN graduate student community and, in particular, to provide a message board to coordinate room sharing and events at ASN meetings.
All the ASN/Am Nat bling you could want and you support the Graduate Student Council

Why I Am a Naturalist
I've long been a naturalist, in the general sense of enjoying birdwatching or botanizing: in high school I was a naturalist for the Appalachian Mountain Club and helped the Zambian Ornithological Society's bird atlas mapping project. The American Society of Naturalists is the natural home for cross-cutting work, particularly work that tries to fuse an expansive theoretical view of biology with some solid empirical data. I also really appreciate the long history of the ASN as the seminal biological research society of our country.
