really liked it
bookshelves: memoir, natural-history, non-fiction, science, geology, biology
Read in December, 2009 , read count: 1

Explains the purpose of the Natural History Museum in London (and similar institutions) as a center of taxonomic & systematic research, & what this entails, through a series of stories about researchers in the museum. In Fortey's view the requirement in the last 15 years or so that everyone have to apply for grants to fund their research is having a negative effect.
