Letters are short reports of original research focused on an outstanding finding whose importance means that it will be of interest to scientists in other fields.
Q. I plan to submit a research article to Nature, but I am not sure what is difference between Nature article and letter. I notice there is usually only one article per issue of Nature, but several letters. I do not know how to decide to submit a manuscript as an article format or as a letter format. Would you please explain this to me?
Collect and cut your branches to size. Freshly cut branches are better for bendability but where possible try and collect them from the ground. Please ask for some adult help before you use the secateurs.
Arrange your letters to spell you name and either leave them displayed on the ground or begin to tie them together if you decide that you want to hang them.
Humans and most other animals have a dual origin. One of these origins is defined by the genetic background that assembles brains, thereby implanting prewired expectations about the sensory and causal regularities of the world in which we are born. The second origin is the organized system of experiences that provides a plethora of feedback and instructions that slowly shape the brain into its final status. In humans, these experiences start especially early to modify the newborn brain and provide an unusually variable tapestry. For decades, scientists have tried to disentangle the impact of nature and nurture, and have proposed mental territories that are mostly governed by one or the other. Here, I argue that genetic predispositions and environmentally dependent learning processes interact continuously at every neural and mental entity, from cortical development to social customs. Not a single territory of our mind is outside the scope of this interaction .
Scientific inquiries into the interaction of biology and culture usually study a certain developmental span, an important event, or a neural, affective, or cognitive system to set a stage on which the details of biocultural co-constructivism can be outlined. This approach necessarily takes a narrow focus but provides great depth and insight into the interactive mechanisms. This book provides many outstanding examples of this kind of approach.
“Conservation International’s mission is to safeguard nature for the well-being of humanity — a mission that is impossible to truly achieve in the shadows of deep-seated prejudice and injustice.”

Deloitte (UK) has commented on Advancing Nature-related Financial Disclosures and use of the CDSB Framework published by the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB).
We believe that a global approach to standard setting in this area is essential and support CDSB’s efforts in promoting such global standards. In particular, we encourage CDSB to work with others to push with urgency for consolidation and harmonisation of standards and frameworks, in order to have the definitive global standard on climate reporting: one that builds on the TCFD recommendations, supported by globally consistent metrics.
