On the cover: Deliberations at the Policy Table. Science is not the only voice in decision making. The relative weighting of science, politics, social/cultural factors, and economics depends on the policy issue in question and the magnitude of uncertainties in decision inputs. See article by Kenneth L. Mossman on page 101 for more information.   LWW image
