Naturalists’ Handbooks encourage and enable those interested in natural history to undertake field study, make accurate identifications and to make original contributions to research. A typical reader may be studying natural history at undergraduate level, carrying out species/habitat surveys as an ecological consultant, undertaking academic research or just developing a deeper understanding of natural history.
