Winners of 2010 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards

t with resistance, facts are stubborn things, and ultimately the analysis was proven correct." Harris won the radio award previously in 1988 and 1995.

Hillary Rosner, a freelance reporter, won the small-newspaper award for her piece in High Country News about the razorback sucker, an endangered fish in the Colorado River that once was abundant and now is dependent on continuing human intervention for its survival. "It's a particular honor to win for this story because it touches on so many topics I love reporting onbiodiversity, resource management, human ingenuity," Rosner said. "I remember being out there in the field thinking, 'I have the best job in the world.'"

Two reports on aspects of memory also were honored. William Saletan of Slate won in the online category for "The Memory Doctor," a lengthy examination of the work of leading memory researcher Elizabeth Loftus. In the winning television entry for spot news/feature reporting, Sarah Holt of "NOVA scienceNow" dealt with the physical basis for the brain's storage of memories in a segment called "How Memory Works."

"As always, the awards demonstrate that journalists are doing outstanding work, providing insights on the process of science and its impact on some of the pressing issues of the day," said Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of AAAS and executive publisher of the journal Science. "As the media landscape continues to evolve, it is reassuring to see the quality of effort being devoted to this vital area of coverage."
