All of us involved in science education understand the importance of scientific literacy. How do we get the attention of a nonscientist? And if we can get it, how do we keep it - not only for the duration of the course or the chapter in a textbook but beyond? How do we convey in our courses and our textbooks not just what we know but also how science is done? These are the challenges we hope to address with our new series of textbooks specifically for the nonscientist. With this series, W. H. Freeman and Scientific American join forces not just to engage nonscientists but to equip them critical life tools.

Monarch butterflies are among the most popular insect species in the world and are an icon for conservation groups and environmental education programs. Monarch caterpillars and adults are easily recognizable as welcome visitors to gardens in North America and beyond, and their spectacular migration in eastern North America (from breeding locations in Canada and the United States to overwintering sites in Mexico) has captured the imagination of the public. Monarch migration, behavior, and chemical ecology have been studied for decades. Yet many aspects of monarch biology have come to light in only the past few years. These aspects include questions regarding large-scale trends in monarch population sizes, monarch interactions with pathogens and insect predators, and monarch molecular genetics and large-scale evolution. A growing number of current research findings build on the observations of citizen scientists, who monitor monarch migration, reproduction, survival, and disease. Monarchs face new threats from humans as they navigate a changing landscape marked by deforestation, pesticides, genetically modified crops, and a changing climate, all of which place the future of monarchs and their amazing migration in peril. To meet the demand for a timely synthesis of monarch biology, conservation and outreach, Monarchs in a Changing World summarizes recent developments in scientific research, highlights challenges and responses to threats to monarch conservation, and showcases the many ways that monarchs are used in citizen science programs, outreach, and education. It examines issues pertaining to the eastern and western North American migratory populations, as well as to monarchs in South America, the Pacific and Caribbean Islands, and Europe. The target audience includes entomologists, population biologists, conservation policymakers, and K–12 teachers.

In this breakthrough introductory text, educators Jamie Pope and Steve Nizielski, and science writer, Alison McCook use real stories—about real people and real science—to teach the basic concepts of nutrition. Each chapter reads like Scientific American-style article, with compelling reporting and beautifully designed infographics providing a context for the scientific content. Unique chapters on timely topics (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, plant-based diets, fat- and water-soluble vitamins, dietary supplements, and the college years) exemplify the book’s thoroughly contemporary approach to nutrition science.
