Field Notes on Science and Nature
Just released from Harvard Press, Field Notes on Science and Nature contains actual pages from the notebooks of a dozen eminent living field scientists and naturalists alongside reflections on note-taking and fieldwork from those authors. Taken together, this volume provides an examination of how fieldwork is recorded and conveys some of the adventure and romance of the field.
