So far I've found all the Best American Science & Nature Writing anthologies that I've read to be well worthwhile. I used to try to read Scientific American, but most of the articles were not well written and I had trouble getting through them. These anthologies at least guarantee that the article will be well written.

Some of my favorites from this year:

Helen Epstein's "Something Happened" on the questions surrounding how AIDS spread to humans
Richard Preston's "The Demon in the Freezer" about the stockpiles of small pox around the world
Hampton Sides' "This is not the Place" on the vicissitudes of Mormon archaeology
