New York Times best-selling author and renowned science journalist Ed Yong compiles the best science and nature writing published in 2020.

The stories I have chosen reflect where I feel the field of science and nature writing has landed, and where it could go, Ed Yong writes in his introduction. They are often full of tragedy, sometimes laced with wonder, but always deeply aware that science does not exist in a social vacuum. They are beautiful, whether in their clarity of ideas, the elegance of their prose, or often both. The essays in this year's Best American Science and Nature Writing brought clarity to the complexity and bewilderment of 2020 and delivered us necessary information during a global pandemic. From an in-depth look at the moment of the virus's outbreak, to a harrowing personal account of lingering Covid symptoms, to a thoughtful analysis on how the pandemic will impact the environment, these essays, as Yong says, synthesize, evaluate, dig, unveil, and challenge, imbuing a pivotal moment in history with lucidity and elegance.
