Description - In a Patch of Fireweed by Bernd Heinrich

Part autobiography, part case study in the ways of field biology, this book is an account of a scientist's life and work. For the author, it is an opportunity to report not just his results but the curiosity, humour, error, passion and competitiveness that feed the process of discovery. His stated purpose is to "tell about the natural links forged between one's life and a life in science", and this volume, illustrated with prencil drawings, combines biographical details with an economic-ecological approach to flora and fauna.
