Abstract [en]

From the oceans to the mountains and the vast in-between scientists have created institutions for scientific work in the field. Long-lived or temporary, more or less humble in scale, these spaces in the landscape and seascape have provided an organizational domestication of migratory science and facilitated scientific work on nature beyond urban centers of learning. As such they have played a significant role in the history of knowledge production. The richly illustrated chapters in this book deepen our understanding of both similarities and differences within the complex history of field science institutions and their relation to other types of academic institutions, from the seventeenth century onwards.
