[Extract] In their insightful editorial "Parks for science" (19 June, p. 1291), G. Machlis and M. McNutt urge scientists to make greater use of protected areas for their research. The benefits are manifold, they argue, and include prospects for exciting new discoveries, the use of parks as experimental controls, and improved park management based on the data collected. There is another advantage that in many cases is even more compelling: Parks that are the foci for research tend to be better protected (1).
