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.
