Hurricane season is storming down on us, and in this edition of USGS Science Picks, you can learn how science is helping to weather these storms and protect our environment. You can also learn about significant gas resources in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, the link between fires and global warming, and how climate change is threatening honeycreepers. 

 June also hosts National Pollinator Week, and this document sheds light on USGS bee and butterfly science. If you would like to receive Science Picks via e-mail, would like to change the recipient or no longer want to receive it, please e-mail jrobertson@usgs.gov.
