This is the official text for the National Association of Science Writers. In the eight years since the publication of the first edition of A Field Guide for Science Writing, much about the world has changed. Some of the leading issues in today's political marketplace - embryonic stem cell research, global warming, health care reform, space exploration, genetic privacy, germ warfare - are informed by scientific ideas. Never has it been more crucial for the lay public to be scientifically literate. That's where science writers come in. And that's why it's time for an update to the Field Guide, already a staple of science writing graduate programs across the country. The academic community has recently recognized how important it is for writers to become more sophisticated, knowledgeable, and skeptical about what they write. More than 50 institutions now offer training in science writing. In addition mid-career fellowships for science writers are growing, giving journalists the chance to return to major universities for specialized training. We applaud these developments, and hope to be part of them with this new edition of the Field Guide. In A Field Guide for Science Writers, 2nd Edition, the editors have assembled contributions from a collections of experienced journalists who are every bit as stellar as the group that contributed to the first edition. In the end, what we have are essays written by the very best in the science writing profession. These wonderful writers have written not only about style, but about content, too. These leaders in the profession describe how they work their way through the information glut to find the gems worth writing about. We also have chapters that provide the tools every good science writer needs: how to use statistics, how to weigh the merits of conflicting studies in scientific literature, how to report about risk. And, ultimately, how to write.

On the morning of January 1, 2000. Mark T. Adams started counting birds. His goal was to find the largest possible number of species in one year in Texas, an undertaking known in birding parlance as a Big year. By the evening of December 31, he had tied the record of 489 species seen or heard within the state's borders in a single calendar year. Traveling thirty-thousand miles across Texas by car and eighteen-thousand miles by plane, Adams alone saw 92 percent of all bird species reported in the state in 2000. In "Chasing Birds across Texas, Adams invites birders and others with a broad interest in the outdoors to join him in exploring Texas' varied habitats on his quest for birds--from the upper coast to the lower coast; into the Hill Country, the Panhandle, and the Chihuahuan Desert; and up the Davis, Chisos, and Guadalupe Mountains. As he happily celebrates the bounty of the Valley's spring migration or desperately searches for a Panhandle rarity, we watch him grow as a naturalist, exult in the Texas landscape, and benefit from the company of some of the world's best birders. Informative, inspiring, and great fun, "Chasing Birds across Texas conveys as perhaps no other bird book can the humor, obsession, dedication, and adventure that are all part of the sport of birding.

"The story that unfolds in this little volume--in ethereal photographs, perceptive essays, and revealing wildflower species descriptions--is a most moving experience in nature appreciation. Savor every image and word." --from the Foreword by Marion T. Jackson, author of 101 Trees of Indiana and The Natural Heritage of Indiana This lovely and thoughtful volume pays tribute to the native plants characteristically found in the Midwest's quiet waters, as distinct from its flowing streams. While most of the species populate broad ranges, all are part of the familiar display that may greet a summer visitor to lakes and wet grounds in the Great Lakes region. Wild Plants in Flower--Wetlands and Quiet Waters of the Midwest features color photographs of 45 species; delightful and engaging species notes for each plant, its habitat, appearance, and range; and perceptive mini-essays that describe the evolution of wetlands and botanical plants and the dangers they face. This field guide will help nature lovers identify and treasure the delicate flora of upland swamp forests, floodplains, wet prairies, marshes, fens, and bogs, and perhaps help preserve their dwindling numbers.
