    It was a treat to see the immense amount of work and thought behind the scenes of the branch of biology that surveys and classifies organisms -- giving us a humbling perspective on how we fit into the world, and an embarrassing perspective on how we're blindly harming so many old and beautiful creatures, each one perfectly suited to it's small place in the world. It was an excellent and unique experience.
