Abstract

The effects of atrazine on amphibians has been the subject of much research, requiring the input of many disciplines. Theory reductive accounts of the relationships among scientific disciplines do not seem to characterize well the ways that diverse disciplines interact in the context of addressing such complex scientific problems. "Problem agenda" accounts of localized scientific integrations seem to fare better. However, problem agenda accounts have tended to focus rather narrowly on scientific explanation. Attention to the details of atrazine research reveals that characterization deserves the sort of attention that problem agenda theorists have thus far reserved for explanation.
