Understanding the array of interactions that shape the living planet on a global level is just as fascinating to us as the complex molecular interactions involved in cellular signaling. We dedicate pages in our Cell Signaling Technology (CST) catalog, our annual nature calendar, and this website to raising awareness about the essential tasks that nature performs in sustaining the biosphere. Each year we highlight a specific environmental theme that highlights not only the extraordinary beauty of nature, but also touches upon important environmental issues that effect life on our planet.
This year’s environmental theme is “Magnificent Marine Environments”, aimed at bringing awareness to the importance of protecting a few unique places. Understanding and acknowledging the serious impact humans have on the environment brings a special responsibility to current policy makers. To quote John Sawhill, former president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy “In the end, our society will be defined not only by what we create, but by what we refuse to destroy.”
As part of this effort, CST supports nonprofit environmental organizations that make a difference in managing, protecting, and conserving the earth’s natural resources and the ecosystems that sustain all life.

“In Defense of Nature” is a new book containing a selection of essays and beautiful images centered around environmental themes originally included in the product catalogs of the last 13 years from Cell Signaling Technology and New England Biolabs.
