What do sun spots, volcanoes and soil nutrients’ impact on crop production have in common? They are the subjects of experiments initiated decades and, in some cases even centuries, ago. Read the specifics for each of these noted experiments and others in the recently published “Long-term research: Slow Science” article in Nature. The abstract is available here and the full text is accessible through the library’s website via its subscription with Nature journal. Any questions regarding accessing the article please Ask a Librarian.
