Good news for naturalists worldwide!
Step by step, the German natural history series Die Neue Brehm-Bücherei will be made available in English.
"...the German series Die Neue Brehm-Bücherei (is) one the best natural history series, probably unique in coverage and quality, but largely neglected outside central Europe"
- Laurence Mound, Systematic Entomology 31, 2006
Scientific literature published in German is hardly noticed internationally. This is also true for Die Neue Brehm-Bücherei, as the quote above shows. That is why Westarp Wissenschaften has set themselves the goal to publish selected volumes of their series in English as well – a challenge for the coming years.
