What does the itinerant conservation biologist George Schaller (see the DISCOVER Interview with Schaller) read? On Schaller’s nightstand:

• What nightstand? He’s just back from a monthlong antelope census on the Tibetan Plateau

Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson (he always gets biographies for Christmas)

The Economist, light—or lightweight, at least—reading of choice

• Warm clothes (cement shelters are heated by burning sheep and yak dung—there are no trees at 15,000 feet—and tents aren’t heated at all)

• Dark chocolate

• Black-and-white composition notebooks for late-night thoughts

• The ads in women’s glamour magazines (“I’ll read anything.”)
