Once in a great while, as the New York Times noted recently, a naturalist writes a book that changes the way people look at the living world. John James Audubons Birds of America, published in 1838, was one. Roger Tory Petersons 1934 Field Guide to the Birds was another. How does such insight into nature develop? Pioneering a new niche in the study of plants and animals in their native habitat, Field Notes on Science and Nature allows readers to peer over the shoulders and into the notebooks of a dozen eminent field workers, to study firsthand their observational methods, materials, and fleeting impressions. What did George Schaller note when studying the lions of the Serengeti? What lists did Kenn Kaufman keep during his 1973 big year? How does Piotr Naskrecki use relational databases and electronic field notes? In what way is Bernd Heinrichs approach truly Thoreauvian, in E. O. Wilsons view? Recording observations in the field is an indispensable scientific skill, but researchers are not generally willing to share their personal records with others. Here, for the first time, are reproductions of actual pages from notebooks.
