After reading Phil Callahan's wonderful and informative book, I guess the first thing I'd say is that I feel for the first time in a long time like I can get air in my lungs. I won't go into a rundown of the many amazing facets of this work but simply say that I think its greatest contribution is perspective and insight. After that there's a lifetime to fill in the details, although Mr Callahan provides a great deal of incredible detail as well. I'm tempted to say that despite having an imposing reading list I'm going to put rereading Tuning in to Nature at the top of it.
I am still reading this book and am almost through. I am inspired enough already to begin putting some devices together to see if I can measure and perhaps duplicate his work. I believe he is definitely the most authoritative writer on the subject of insects, and other creatures, as to their interaction with the environment.
A fascinating book on the world of insects and their infrared perceptions by a dedicated researcher whose mind was truly open to the greatness and complexity of Creation. A lot of details.some of which might put off the lay readers, but a fantastic account of the complexity of nature.
This book - Tuning in to nature by Philip S. Callahan - is a must have for every farmer. Working with soils, plant and the future of your children and grand children puts you under pressure to look after nature in more friendly ways. Understand nature by reading this book.
