Description

Full of stories of courageous men and women bravely told, Science Under Siege introduces us to America's "Combat Scientist," biologist, hydrologists, grizzly trackers, rock hounds, and cave-diving detectives who are struggling to understand and protect our nation's natural resources.

In often vivid prose author Todd Wilkinson reveals these whistleblowers' fears and frustrations:  fears over what their science is discovering, and frustration over having their life's works attacked by government bureaucrats more interested in protecting oil companies and real-estate developers than the public that pays their salaries.
