About this book

Good field research is the driving force behind advancement in the agronomic, environmental, and soil sciences. Nevertheless, many undergraduate and graduate scientists have limited opportunity to develop hands-on experience before undertaking projects in the field. With Fieldwork Ready, Dr Sara Vero maps out the fundamental principles, methods, and management techniques that underpin this crucial practice, offering trainee researchers an accessible introduction to the world of on-site investigation.

This instructive text includes:
- Guidance on the essential aspects of environmental monitoring and soil, water, plant, and wildlife research
- Insights into the methods behind experiment planning and effective fieldwork
- Tips for team management and safety
- Explanations of how to select and correctly use soil sampling equipment

Offering new researchers a primer that is practical and easy to follow, Fieldwork Ready is the ideal starting point for all those beginning a career in the agricultural sciences.
