Crop protection research in the Tropics is always interesting and challenging, and usually professionally rewarding. Once involved, researchers often find it difficult to leave international research settings. However, the wise field scientist, when choosing such a career, will make Barley ’s (3) “The Innocent Anthropologist ” required reading and purchase a very good pair of binoculars and a local bird guide. Even the most resourceful individual is going to have a considerable amount of time to add birds to one ’s life list, improve species distribution maps, or possibly even identify a new species while waiting for the key to be found, the vehicle to show up, or the mud to dry out.
