The 2020 issue includes six Research Papers, eight Nature Notes and one Report. The LW team is greatly saddened by the passing of Jo-Anne Sewlal, one of our regular contributors and friend of the TTFNC. A survey of the spiders of Dominica is published here posthumously along with a tribute in her memory.

The Trinidad and Tobago Bird Guide is the latest publication from the Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalist’s Club.
The guide targets the casual or beginner birdwatcher/naturalist and is intended to introduce persons to our birdlife. It features just over 250 species, with priority on those species most likely to be encountered by a beginner/intermediate birdwatcher, so as not to be overwhelming.
This is a folding guide, in the same style as the wildlife, wildflower and butterfly guides and is conveniently sized at approx. 3.5″ by 8.75″ (9 cm by 22 cm) when folded and 24″ by 8.75″ (61 cm by 22 cm) when spread flat.
