When I was named the new Editor-in-Chief of PNAS in October 2018, I received hearty congratulations from colleagues from a wide range of disciplines, befitting the intended audience of this venerable journal. The appointment is not my first experience serving as Editor-in-Chief; in 2017, I stepped down after 21 years as Editor-in-Chief of the Annual Review of Entomology (ARE). Although ARE is known in entomological circles as the most highly cited journal in the field, even my entomological coll...
A lot can be learned about the history of science in America from browsing through the front matter of PNAS across its 104-year history. You’d have to look through 73 volumes, for example, before coming across the name of the first distaff editor-in-chief. In 1985, molecular biologist Maxine Singer became the journal’s first female editor; at the time she was appointed, she presided over an Editorial Board of 16 NAS members, all of whom were men. By the time her term ended in 1988, plant molecul...
My sister and I, being so close in age, fight about almost everything. We argue about who was cuter, or who wore what to which event. We always fight about the past.
With more than 8,500 journals publishing content deemed worthy of inclusion in Science Citation Index Expanded , the launch of a new journal is not necessarily noteworthy. In fact, the proliferation of open access journals has become problematic, if in no other way than by filling email inboxes of scientists with invitations to join editorial boards of journals having little or no connection to their expertise. As an entomologist, I have been invited to submit to or serve on the boards of journa...

Elevated CO2 alters C3 plant tolerance to insect herbivory, as well as the induction kinetics of defense hormones salicylic acid (SA) and jasmonic acid (JA), but the underlying physiological mechanism causing this response is not well understood. In principle, SA could be induced under elevated CO2 by reactive oxygen signals generated in photosynthesis, ultimately influencing chemical defense. To test whether the effects of elevated CO2 on C3 plant chemical defense against herbivorous insects ar...

The navel orangeworm (Amyelois transitella) and the fungus Aspergillus flavus constitute a facultative mutualism and pest complex in tree nut and fruit orchards in California. The possibility exists that the broad detoxification capabilities of A. flavus benefit its insect associate by metabolizing toxicants, including hostplant phytochemicals and pesticides. We examined this hypothesis by conducting laboratory bioassays to assess growth rates and survivorship of pyrethroid-resistant (R347) and ...
