The Bulletin

 
 

The British Pteridological Society Bulletin annually publishes news about the Society and reports of its activities.

 

History of our journals

1909 - The British Fern Gazette was established as the Society’s journal; it contained a wide range of articles, news and Society business.

1963 - The British Fern Gazette was developing into a more scientific journal and an annual foolscap sheet was produced to communicate news of Society business to members, which later developed into a more formal Newsletter.

1973 - A more permanent format was felt to be appropriate and the BPS Bulletin was launched “to serve chiefly the non-scientific membership, and to supply all information of interest to our members.”

1984 - Following the committee’s decision to split the Bulletin, the Pteridologist was launched to publish articles, leaving the Bulletin to focus on Society business and reports of meetings. It has grown considerably in size, reflecting the Society’s increasingly ambitious programme of events.

Bulletin on BHL

Volumes 1-5 (1973-2001)
Scanned copies of the Bulletin are now available at the Biodiversity Heritage Library. This is part of the BPS project to make all its back issues (over two years old) available on an open access basis.

The copies of volumes 6 & 7 available on this page are derived from the original digital masters and so will generally be of higher quality than the scanned versions.

The Bulletin is also available on the Internet Archive. The copies there are based on the same scans but the presentation, available file formats and search facilities differ.
