520    Knowing Global Environments brings together nine leading 
       scholars whose work spans a variety of environmental and 
       field sciences, including archaeology, agriculture, botany,
       climatology, ecology, evolutionary biology, oceanography, 
       ornithology, and tidology. Collectively their essays 
       explore the history of the field sciences, through the 
       lens of place, practice, and the production of scientific 
       knowledge, with a wide-ranging perspective extending 
       outwards from the local to regional, national, imperial, 
       and global scales.
