    Dedicated to the memory of my father


    Many people have contributed in one way or another to this book. Colleagues and students at Lancaster University have provided a richly fecund intellectual environment. My thanks go particularly to Susan Condor, Robin Grove-White, Gavin Kendall, Celia Lury, Kath Smart, Vicky Singleton, John Wakeford and Brian Wynne. Further afield, I have benefited immensely from conversations and collaborations with Lynda Birke, Rob Briner, Alan Irwin, Rosemary McKechnie, Arthur Still, Chris Todd and Carol Youngson. Light in those inevitable moments of darkness was shed by Sue Armistead, Lynda Birke, Susan Condor, Celia Lury and Marios Michael. Bethan and Aneirin Rees provided the final, glorious spur to completing this text. Finally, I would like to thank all those participants who so graciously gave of their time. Parts of the research reported here were funded by the ESRC/SPSG programme on the Public Understanding of Science and by the ESRC/NCC programme on the People, Economies and Nature Conservation, as well as by the New Scientist, Cancer Research Campaign and the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare.
