Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be attributed to a number of factors including genetics and environment. The diverse nature of its impact requires an individual approach to dianosis and assistive therapies, creating challenges for the individuals, their families, and health care professionals. In support of World Autism Awareness Week, we have curated ASD articles and they are FREE to read until May 31, 2018 and always available by subscription. The Annual Review of Public Health is always free to read, thanks to support to increase openness and transparency in research provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Over 23,900 natural species are currently threatened with extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, including 41% of amphibians, 25% of mammals, and 13% of birds. This article collection, written by invited experts, looks at ecology and extinction risk-from the ancient DNA biomarkers that indicate environmental activity during historical extinctions, to modern day research in biodiversity loss. These Annual Reviews articles were freely available through December 2017 and are always available to subscribers.

In recognition of World Oceans Day, Annual Reviews has curated a collection of articles that review the topics of marine pollution, human impact and environmental stewardship, and marine species' adaptation. Nano- and microplastics are polluting the food chain from the bottom up. Harrowing images of marine wildlife entangled in, or ingesting, the plastic debris in our oceans serve as stark warning of the impact humans are having on the environment. These images are increasing in prevalence, but today is a great day to mobilize for change. FREE ONLINE ACCESS THROUGH JULY 31, 2018 and always available at subscribing institutions.
