Landscapes & labscapes : exploring the lab-field border in biology /

Kohler explores the people, places and practices of field biology in the United States from the 1890s to the 1950s. Using historical frontiers as models, he shows how biologists created vigorous new border sciences of ecology and evolutionary biology.
