About

Showcasing dozens of the most provocative, original, and significant online essays from 2012, The Best Science Writing Online 2013 challenges the way we think about science and science writing — from plants in pain to when hyenas give up garbage, from the smell of death to the culture of innocence. Featuring noted authors and journalists as well as the brightest up-and-comers writing online today, this collection provides a comprehensive look at the fascinating, innovative, and trailblazing scientific achievements and breakthroughs of 2012, along with elegant and thoughtprovoking new takes on favorite topics. This is the seventh anthology of online essays produced through ScienceOnline. Guest-edited and with an introduction by author and science blogger Scott Huler, The Best Science Writing Online 2013 marks the collection's first collaboration with the Creatavist platform, making the work available not only online but in every electronic book format -- but the collection remains much as it has in each previous edition, marrying cutting-edge science with dynamic writing that will inspire us all.
