In the dark forest, once we left the openness cast by the starry heavens, the world closed in around us. Distances stretched out. Noises magnified. And insects, the true owners of the planet, took over. Layer upon layer of insect sounds woke the night; katydids and their kin made a racket that seemed never to end. Frogs chimed in, dissonantly, in cadence, and the occasional night bird added to the din. A sudden thrashing in the brush made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. We turned on lights and flashed.
Some of us were competent naturalists and knew a lot about birds or plants. Others were reasonable theoreticians or lab types. But few of us knew enough of both nature and theory to identify a cutting-edge biological issue and match it with a natural phenomenon exhibited by some plant or animal in nature, in a way to get the issue clarified in the two or three years available to a student. I suspect that identifying a sexy but tractable problem and matching it to solid field data remains the hardest part of earning a graduate degree in biology.
I loved being in the field, and I was sure I knew the best way to do just about everything. I was a few years older than most of the group, and I had just returned from fifteen months in New Guinea, which colored my world view. Limbo Camp and the Pipeline Road were a young naturalist’s paradise. ” (a Three-toed Sloth) . . Everything was new, and so prolific! Vegetation, birds, insects—the place was bursting with life.
