"Being a scientist" is such a vague concept---what field? What specialty? It's difficult to find a passion in the sciences with such generalities; scientists fall in love with their field of science, and young students are no different!

Give students a brilliantly enlightening example of how polar bear scientists research their animals, what tools they use, where they go, and about the behavior and long-range changes they're so interested in. Learn about how polar bear studies can not only teach us about how individual polar bears are faring, but also about how conditions in the arctic are affecting them. Scientists Dr. Steven Amstrup, Dr. George Durner, field biology Kristin Simac, and "helo" operator Joe Fieldman have the exciting job of "chasing" polar bears to tag them, take samples, and analyze their data in order to uncover patterns; discover how their important work directly led to placing polar bears on the endangered species list, and how people can help them to stable levels once more. 80 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.

"Being a scientist" is such a vague concept---what field? What specialty? It's difficult to find a passion in the sciences with such generalities; scientists fall in love with their field of science, and young students are no different!

Give students a brilliantly enlightening example of what an elephant field biologist researches, how they research, what tools they use, where they go, and about the elephant behavior they're so interested in. Learn about the lives of elephants-their family structures, eating habits, and day-to-day life, as well as how research science works. Caitlin O'Connell had an idea that the dense fat at the heel of an elephant helped with more than cushioning their feet, but rather might help with the transmission of low-frequency signals to and from the ground. Follow her work as she tracks elephants, conduct experiments, and tests whether her hypothesis is correct! 70 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket.
