Other Useful Publications
The Handbook of the Birds of the World is the first work ever to illustrate and deal in detail with all the living species of birds. With the publication of volume 16, it has become the first work to verbally and visually portray each member of an entire Class of the Animal Kingdom. The Bermuda Audobon Society has kindly donated each volume of this publication to the BAMZ library.
Whale Song gives an account of Bermuda resident Andrew Stephenson's research into the migratory social behaviour of North Atlantic humpback whales. This beautifully illustrated book not only tells the story of the whales migration but also of Andrew's passion for his project.
The Atlas of Global Conservation is a comprehensive gude to global environmental conservation. Using full-colour maps and graphics contextulalized with clear, informative discussion, this book offers an unprecedented view of trends across the world's terrestrial, marine, and freshwater environments.
Bermuda Natural History Library
The Natural History Museum Science Library is located at BAMZ and is the island’s repository for all information related to Bermuda’s biodiversity, ecology, habitats and species. The Bermuda Natural History Bibliography is a library computer database, which contains well over 5,000 references, including all BBSR Contributions (papers published through the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences). Most of these papers are readily accessible as hard copies or pdfs. Particularly exciting is the growing number of papers, over 250, published under the umbrella of the Bermuda Biodiversity Project. Books, journals, scientific papers, and newspaper stories relevant to Bermuda are constantly being published on a daily basis, but the search goes on for missing or new items. It is the library’s role to locate this information, store and disseminate it. You can visit the Library by appointment or request materials by contacting the Librarian Alison Green at firstname.lastname@example.org
The library information is held as physical, photographic and digital library catalogues.
