The critically acclaimed Scientist in the Field book about how one boy's interest in backyard science inspired a career in scientific discovery. Growing up in South Carolina, Tyrone Hayes didn't worry about pesticides. While scientists around the globe discovered frogs were dying of habitat loss and disease, Tyrone learned basically the most typically utilized pesticide inside the United States, atrazine, might also play a role. When he tested it in his Berkeley lab, it caused some in the males to mutate into half-male, half-female frogs. He wanted to know what was happening and why, so he traveled America to complete the study and find out. He just liked to gather frogs, and later discovered his calling in an amphibian investigation lab.
