I am only a 4th year biology student at UCSC, so regrettably I never got to know Ken Norris himself. However, I have heard much about his influence in the UC Natural Reserve System and the field quarter he offered that seems to define so much of what he did. Reading this was truly fascinating to me, and has in many ways validated and reinspired my interests in the natural world. He so eloquently described the often ineffable beauty and satasfaction of being within a natural system, and asking those questions that elucidate the complex interactions and processes that compose that environment.
In this easy going and good humored fashion, he draws your attention to the relationships not only within nature, but between us as human beings and nature, and the importance of understanding these relationships. He speaks in a voice that not only makes these interactions abundantly obvious, but in a way that stimulates your curiosity for seeing the underlying mechanisms within nature. In so many words, he makes you feel good to be a naturalist!
