The process of science

"Through a series of examples drawn from biology, climate science, geology, environmental science, and other disciplines, the chapters in this book demystify the process of science, and the work that scientists do. The authors highlight the many methods used in science and the common characteristics that unite them all as "science". The examples illustrate that science is a human endeavor, and research is enriched and enlivened by the diversity of scientists themselves. This book is an excellent companion to any college-level introductory science course, emphasizing how we know what we know. It will also serve as an invaluable resource for undergraduate students preparing to do research for the first time or for anyone who might be interested in learning more about the process of science and scientific research. -- Book blurb
