The Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalists' Club
The ongoing activities of the Club are reported through
minutes of the monthly meetings and by Quarterly Bulletins which are
circulated to all members. The Bulletins also give detailed reports of
field trips undertaken by the Club.
Back issues of the Bulletin are archived on this site.
Selected articles from the Quarterly Bulletin
In April each year, the Club publishes a Programme of Activities which includes all lectures and field trips planned during the ensuing year.
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. Information on ordering the Journal, as well as indexes and archived articles, can be found on the Journal pages.
A collection of the early issues of the journal, spanning the years 1891 to 1896, has been republished on CD.
