Of Scientists and Salamanders

Of Scientists and Salamanders

By Victor Chandler Twitty

Pages: xii, 178 p. With wit and candor, a distinguished biologist traces the course of a career that has led "from New Haven to Berlin to Stanford, from microsurgery to natural history and back again, and from the study of cell populations in tissue culture to the study of animal populations in the streams and hills of northern California." In the course of his peregrinations Professor Twitty has come into contact with some of the great workers in experimental embryology, has discovered several new species and subspecies of the western newt, Taricha, and has investigated the astonishing homing abilities of these altogether remarkable creatures. Of Scientists and Salamanders is the engrossing—and sometimes surprising answer of one scientist to the question of what it is like to spend a lifetime in scientific research. No less, it is an account of the major role the salamander has played as an experimental animal in several extremely important developments in biology. Throughout, it is full of the excitement, the disappointment, the tedium, and the plain fun of research and discovery. Although no book can answer all the questions about either scientists or salamanders, this little volume will give the reader valuable insights into the ways of both.

In Search of the Golden Frog

By Marty Crump

320 pages | 16 color plates, 60 halftones, 19 maps | 6 x 9 | © 2000Marty Crump has searched for salamanders along the Amazon River; she has surveyed amphibians and reptiles in hostile Huaorani Indian territory; she has been stung by a conga ant and had run-ins with an electric eel, a boa constrictor, and a bushmaster viper. In the course of her travels she has dined, not always eagerly, on wild rat, parrot, guinea pig, and chicken foot soup. And for those among us who prefer our experiences to be vicarious and far away from biting insects, venomous snakes, and inhospitable surroundings, she has written In Search of the Golden Frog. The book is a detailed and fascinating chronicle of Crump's adventures as a field biologist—and as a wife and mother—in South and Central America. Following Crump on her research trips through Costa Rica, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, and Chile, we learn of amazingly diverse landscapes, equally diverse national traditions and customs, and the natural history of her subject of study, the frog. In leading us through rain forests and onto windswept coasts, Crump introduces us to such compelling creatures as female harlequin frogs, who pounce on males and pound their heads against the ground, and also sounds an alarm about the precipitous decline in amphibian populations around the globe. Crump's perspectives as both a scientist and a mother, juggling the demands of family and professional life, make this highly readable account of fieldwork simultaneously close to home and wildly exotic. A combination of nature writing and travel writing, the richly illustrated In Search of the Golden Frog will whet travelers' appetites, affirm the experiences of seasoned field biologists, and offer the armchair naturalist vivid descriptions of amphibians and their habitats.
