Description
Whether hanging from suspension bridges to track the flight of raptors, scuba diving into the crushing cores of moving glaciers, or exploring the burning cauldrons of active volcanoes, there is a special breed of scientist willing to go wherever they must and do whatever it takes to get the data they need. In the tradition of the great naturalist-explorers, these daring men and women of science are working at nature's harsh extremes, where there is no substitute for first-hand experience, no computer models or controlled experiments that will give them the data they need -- and no room for mistakes.

Science and nature writer and photojournalist, Peter Lane Taylor, accompanied 9 of these "extreme scientists" and experienced first-hand the rigors of their special brand of research. In Science at the Extreme, he combines stunning original photographs with gripping narrative accounts to take readers on a thrilling adventure -- with a purpose -- to the very frontiers of discovery.
