Pressestimmen"Crump's writing has great freshness. She is bursting to pass on every last froggy fragment of enthusiasm and knowledge." - Adrian Barnett, New Scientist "Marty Crump is an excellent storyteller and her collection of 'tales from the field' will delight those who do tropical fieldwork, will educate those who wonder why people actually work in 'green hell,' and will be a valued resource to the next generation of tropical biologists." - Maureen A. Donnelly, Ecology"
