About the book:

We share a common bond with even the most bizarre beetle of the Peruvian rain forest, asserts John Janovy Jr. A belief in that common bond might, in fact, be the most fundamental characteristic of a biologist. And biologists see the worth of a plant or an animal not in monetary terms but in its contribution to our understanding of life. The famous naturalist brings a humanists vision to this superbly written book.

On Becoming a Biologist is grounded in reality, cognizant of practical matters (education and jobs) as well as the ideals that inform the professiona reverence for life and a responsibility to humankind and its future. Janovy draws on his experiences as a graduate and postdoctoral student, on his rewarding relationships with teachers, and on his fieldwork as a naturalist. This edition includes new information throughout the book regarding pertinent events, issues, and changes in technology.
