Why I Am a Naturalist
I've long been a naturalist, in the general sense of enjoying birdwatching or botanizing: in high school I was a naturalist for the Appalachian Mountain Club and helped the Zambian Ornithological Society's bird atlas mapping project. The American Society of Naturalists is the natural home for cross-cutting work, particularly work that tries to fuse an expansive theoretical view of biology with some solid empirical data. I also really appreciate the long history of the ASN as the seminal biological research society of our country.
