about this item
There is a place in Costa Rica where people from all over the world work to advance our scientific knowledge. This place, the La Selva Biological Station, is known around the world for its scientific productivity and fantastic rainforest. However, this is also a place where occasionally you will hear things like… “What kind of soup is it?” – “Chlorophyll.” “I’m pregnant!...with a botfly.” “Something behind Casa 4 smelled like a dead animal.” – “Oh, that was probably our field clothes.” “…and this part of it is inedible.” – “Oh, I think I ate that already.” “Your project just ate my project!” Come in for a behind-the-scenes, always hilarious, sometimes gross, and occasionally even inspiring journey into the lives of field biologists in the tropical rainforest. Carissa Ganong’s collection of quotes (hundreds of them over the last few years) will give you an insight into the lives of thousands of students, researchers and visitors to this most wonderful place on Earth.
