NHSN has been publishing books and journals for nearly 200 years. Here, you can explore and purchase a range of NHSN publications on natural history in the North East.

NHSN publications

The Northumbrian Naturalist is the only journal in the region to publish papers on local fauna, flora and geology. This series includes Coastal Wildlife, an annual report of the wildlife observed at various sites along the Northumberland Coast.

We also publish a magazine, North East Nature, which keeps our members up-to-date with the latest natural history news from across the region.

We also regularly publish the work and publications of independent naturalists across the North East. If you would like to contribute a paper or article or offer a book for sale, please get in touch.

I enjoy the educational (and enjoyable) publications and the knowledge that, with my membership, I am helping inspire others to protect and enjoy nature.
