The first person writing style never strays from character, and the man is likeable and believable. Unfortunately it's told from the view of a bureaucrat with all the mundane details included. I did like the planet.

Hard SF. Sent by the interstellar Union of the Ceylesian Arm to the colony world of Stittara, scientist Dr. Paulo Verano must assess the impact of human activity on the planet's ecosystem. Complicating his assignment, however, are political and economic considerations, for Stittara is a source of anagathics, a class of life-extending drug more valuable to his employers than either the planet's unique ecology or its many and varied inhabitants. For more stories about plantetary exploration in which scientific, political, and corporate interests intersect, check out Joan Slonzcewski's Elysium cycle or Jane Lindskold's Artemis Awakening series.
