About The Book
This mischievous behind-the-scenes account of life at a biological research station on a Panamanian island “conveys the uncertainties, frustrations, and joys of [scientific] field work” (Science). Journalist Elizabeth Royte weaves together her own adventures on Barro Colorado with tales of researchers struggling to parse the intricate workings of a tropical rain forest. As Royte works alongside the scientists � sorting insects, collecting monkey dung, radiotracking fruit bats � she asks: What is the point of such research? Both “moving and satisfying” (Providence Sunday Journal), The Tapir’s Morning Bath humanizes the scientists, who are driven by passion and ambition to explore arcane questions even though the world may not have time to wait for the answers.
