SLF researchers experience a lot in the course of the work they do in the office, lab and especially out in the field. In the 'Logbook' blog they will post sporadic reports on these experiences. These blog posts help to cast light on what research entails: creativity, passion, patience and massive effort. Blog posts reflect the personal opinions of their authors.
