Features

Living Large: In search of the elusive large animal veterinarian :: Nearly 500 counties in the United States have large herds of cattle, but no veterinarians to care for them. Although veterinary student Sam Nielson claims that it's the life of the large animal veterinarian that he's after, not money, fewer and fewer feel that way, moving to other types of practices that offer both better working conditions and compensation. by Hannelore Sudermann

A Seat at the Table :: When Patty Murray '72, after a year as a state legislator, set her sights on the U.S. Senate, she got little encouragement. "You haven't paid your dues," they said. "You don't have enough money. You don't know the right people." None of that made any difference to Murray. by Hannelore Sudermann

Straight Shot to a Breakthrough? Don't count on it :: There are two sides to everything, says entomologist William Snyder of his biocontrol research. Along the way to developing a "practical" approach for crop defense, he answered a fundamental evolutionary question: Why are there so many species? by Cherie Winner
