INHS SP 30: Canaries in the Catbird Seat: The Past, Present, and Future of Biological Resources in a Changing Environment

Editors: Christopher A. Taylor, John B. Taft and Charles E. Warwick
2009, 306 p.

Canaries in the Catbird Seat:The Past, Present, and Future of Biological Resources in a Changing Environmentusually $30, now is $20. This publication reflects the role of scientists and biologists who serve as “environmental sensors” through observation and research, much like the historic role of the mineshaft canary in alerting miners to low oxygen levels or poisonous gases. This colloquialism applies to institutions and scientists involved in biological monitoring and research because of the perspective gained by extensive experience across many ecosystems and species groups. The book describes the INHS and its staff, who, since 1858, have had the unique and privileged position of making observations and analyzing data collected throughout Illinois, the Midwest, and beyond. The 150-year time span of their studies is perhaps unparalleled for biological monitoring agencies in the United States. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of INHS, these observations were summarized and recounted to be accessible to citizens interested in our shared natural heritage and in context with the wider scientific community
