We are excited to announce the publication this July of Beetles of Hertfordshire – a ground breaking addition to our acclaimed series of books on the county's wildlife.
Written by Trevor James, the county recorder, the book provides an account of all 2,483 species of beetle so far recorded here. Its publication marks the first time that all the beetles reliably recorded in a UK county have been covered in such a comprehensive way – making it a landmark for future studies.
Published in hardback in the same, attractive A4 format as our five existing wildlife atlases, the book’s 496 pages include 750 distribution maps and more than 600 colour photographs.
We expect to receive copies of Beetles of Hertfordshire by July, and pre-publication orders can be placed now at the special introductory price of £25 (plus p&p). This provides a huge £20 saving on the recommended retail price. Click 'read more' for further details, including two launch events.
Like other organisations, the Hertfordshire Natural History Society has responded to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that take effect on 25 May by reviewing its arrangements for making sure its use of personal data remains legal.
Birds of Hertfordshire, our beautifully illustrated account of population trends among more than 300 species recorded in the county, has been judged one of the best local bird atlases in Britain.
A panel of experts convened by British Birds magazine placed our book on a shortlist of the top six county bird atlases. It was then awarded fourth place in the final judging.
