Books, Publications and Images

The publishing programme continues to thrive under the museum's own imprint and through co- publishing arrangements for academic, commercial and children's ventures.

Two more titles were launched in the Life Series, Trees and Sharks, both published in the US by the Smithsonian Institution Press and in Australia by CSIRO. We joined with the same publishing partners to take the UK and Europe distribution rights for Dragonflies of the World, a reference book which has sold extremely well, and we are planning further similar ventures. A highly enjoyable short history of the museum was published using archive image material: The Natural History Museum: Nature's Treasurehouse by Thackray and Press. And the Animal Close-Ups series was launched with Oxford University Press aimed at a younger readership of 4 to 6 year-olds.

In the academic arena, we have awarded the publication contract for the Bulletins of The Natural History Museum Series: Botany, Entomology, Geology and Zoology to Cambridge University Press. As part of the new arrangement, the Bulletins for 2002 will be available both online and in print. In 2003 the Bulletins will be relaunched as two international journals: Systematics and Biodiversity and Journal of Systematic Palaeontology.
