In the Foreword to Off-beat Biologist I promised, threatened might be a better word, a second volume of autobiography. In writing Off- beat, it had become obvious that one volume, even a largish one, would not accommodate all I had to say. In the end, some chapters already written, much of my background and almost all the accounts of professional and other travel were left out of Off-beat, with the intention that they should be integrated as a separate volume, Biologist a! Large. Here it is. Part I deals with the same era as Part I in Offbeat, but with the exception of Chapter 1, from another side of the fence. Part II describes how I came to burst my geographical bonds and start on my travels. Parts Ill-VI further record my visits, mostly professionally based, a few private, which took me to many parts of the world , The seventh and last Part of Biologist at Large introduces some new themes and elaborates on some old ones.
