The new feature page is about Nobel Laureate Melvin Calvin , whose landmark research and body of scientific work into how plants capture energy from the sun resulted in a key series of reports about the path of carbon in photosynthesis, eventually sparking the U.S. Department of Energy's solar energy research. This feature page contains links to twenty-one electronic documents in this key series, "The Path of Carbon in Photosynthesis", in addition to two summary-level electronic documents written in 1952 and 1960. Also available is Calvin's Nobel Prize lecture from 1961.
