From a friend:
Still looking and asking.

One that popped into my head was Collecting and Preserving Plants and Animals, by Jens W. Knudsen, 1972. He was a faculty member at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. I donít know how available the book is, as Iím sure itís out of print. But I think it was probably the best all-around of such books. Iíll check for more.

Does anyone have recommendations for books or other resources on field work, how to preserve specimens, work on site to get all the necessary information for an illustration?
