THE FIELD NATURALIST (QUARTERLY BULLETIN)
The ongoing activities of the Club are reported in our quarterly bulletin entitled “The Field Naturalist”. The bulletin is circulated to all members. In addition to accounts of our field trips, the bulletins also offer miscellaneous articles on various topics of interest.
The Club publishes an annual journal, “Living World”, which includes specialist articles and the results of research projects and investigative studies undertaken by various members and interest groups of the Club and non-members. Information on ordering the journal, as well as indexes and archived articles, can be found on the Living World pages.
