Abstract

Studies conducted in the field offer unique opportunities to observe nature, but achieving true replication under natural conditions is challenging. As demonstrated by the discovery of frog eating by a charismatic bat, biology conducted in the field generally follows an interesting progression that includes discovery, demonstration, experimentation, and verification.
