The latest issue of the Natural Environment Research Council's award winning quarterly magazine 'Planet Earth' includes several articles on the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology's Science.

A feature article by Ian Simpson and Dan Osborn describes how next year's Countryside Survey will provide an invaluable snapshot of the state of Britain's landscape. For more details of this important project visit the new Countryside Survey website.

In the News section, details are given of a recent paper by Dr Andrew Singer and CEH colleagues, that looks at the possible environmental effects of widespread use of Tamiflu, one of the drugs stockpiled to combat avian flu.

And finally, on the back page, you can learn why and how neutrons and muddy water feature in new research by Dr Helen Jarvie.
