Re: Wild Collections must be identified
You bring up a good point about the chilliness of some of the pros to
what we do. I've had an experience with a Ph.D who told me a few times
he would supply me with additional pairs of a species I was working
with, but with time I realized I was being "stalled," most likely in the
hope that I would forget about the fish. When I dropped the subject, so
This rift between the professional end and the "amateur" end (let's
remember the Latin root of "amateur!") of things won't really hurt the
hobby, or research. Just the fish - the reason we all do what we do.
I'm agonizing over making a decision to return to college to get that
grad degree, and it troubles me that if I had "M.S." or Ph.D" after my
name I would have been dealt with in a more equitable manner - That is
not what it should be about...right?
Both ends can and should help each other - look at any serious guppy
breeder's bloodline charts and you'll see plent of serious "paperwork."
I'm done ranting :-)
