NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES Colloquium Series In 1991, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) inaugurated a series of scientific colloquia, several of which are held each year under the auspices of the NAS Council's Committee on Scientific Programs. Each colloquium ad- dresses a scientific topic of broad and topical interest, cutting across two or moretraditional disciplines.Typicallytwodays long, colloquia are international in scope and bring together leading scientists in the field. Papers from colloquia are published in the Proceedings of the National Aca c/e my of Sciences (PNAS).

NationalAcadlemy of Sciences Colloquia Bouncl Reprints Available n 1991, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) inaugurated a series of scientific colloquia, several of which are held each year under the auspices of the NAS Council Committee on Scientific Programs. These colloquia address scientific topics of broad and topical interest that cut across two or more traditional disciplines. Typically two days long, these colloquia are international in scope and bring together leading scientists in the field. Papers presented at these colloquia are published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and are available online (www.pnas.org). Because they have generated much interest, these papers are now available in the form of collected bound reprints, which may be ordered through the National Academy Press.

Graeme Yates 1 944-2000 Graeme Yates, an Australian auditory physiologist and internationally recognized expert on cochlear function, died on October 13 after a courageous struggle with a long illness. Graeme had been invited to speak in the NAS Colloquium on Auditory Neuroscience: Development, Transduc- tion, andintegration, but was too sick to attend. His penetrating insights into both mammalian and non-mammalian cochlear function were sorely missed. Graeme was at the height of his power as a scientist and was planning new studies of cochlear mechanics and neurophysiology until only days before his death. Over 25 years of publications attest to his major contributions to our current understanding of cochlear mechanics and adherent neural output, to the analysis of otoacoustic emissions, and to descriptions of two-tone interactions and adaptation. Graeme made multifaceted contributions to the many research teams of which he was part, investigating the hearing of mammals, reptiles, and birds, designing hardware, writing software, and providing fundamental theoretical contributions to data interpretation. All those who have had the privilege of working with Graeme Yates cherish their memories of this civilized man and passionate scientist. His death is a tragedy for auditory physiology, and his loss will be felt acutely by his friends and colleagues.
