|Abstract:||Buskett is a place of outstanding natural history interest, and this book suggests some ways in which this can be investigated. 'Look at Buskett' gave an initial description, ·and at least four hours should have been spent at Buskett with this introductory guide before work is attempted from the advanced one. Some of the tests and experiments described require simple equipment. Much of this can be obtained from ironmongers, chemists, or stationers, but a microscope (and its accessories), a balance more accurate than the kitchen scales, a drying oven, and some of the chemicals, cannot be obtained locally, but are standard equipment for most secondary schools. Buskett is a place of great beauty. It is also a place of many visitors. Each visitor holds this beauty in trust for those coming after - both for those coming the next week, and for those of the next generation. Before leaving any spot, look round and enquire 'Can anyone see that I have been here?' If the answer is 'yes', repair the damage before you go.|
