Abstract

Craig Loehle’s opening sentence captured my attention and set the scene for this interesting and well-constructed volume. It is challenging and pro-vocative throughout and is at its strongest when its frequent assertions initiate thoughts, contemplation, and reflection. Although its intended audience is students and researchers, I suggest that it would be a worthwhile read for everyone in the scientific community – researchers, academics, teachers, students from undergraduate stages onwards, technicians, engineers, managers and entrepreneurs, as well as interested observers.
