Having trained students for several years, it became apparent that there was a need for a book that consolidated the practical aspects of the learning process (including ALL subjects trees, insects, birds etc). There are so many technical books out there which can be daunting for beginner naturalists. They wanted to produce something that focused on the most commonly encountered subjects from an interpretative context (rather than solely identification). It was clear that although the book would be an awesome training tool, it would also be suitable for anyone going to the bush or with an interest in wildlife and the kind of info obtained from the book (facilitated by its special format) would be like taking your own 'ranger' into the bush with you.
