Welcome to the May 2024 edition of the NHBS Monthly Catalogue, which lists all new titles added to our website in the last month.

We kick off with a nice selection of bird books, including several field guides. Christopher Helm has announced the Birds of Costa Rica and the 2nd edition of The Australian Bird Guide for October, and the 2nd edition of Birds of Cuba for November, while Princeton University Press will publish The Gull Guide: North America in October. Several UK-centric titles include the privately published 2nd edition of The Birds of Moray & Nairn: Their Status and Where to Find Them, which is now in stock; Pelagic Publishing's Clinging to the Edge: A Year in the Life of a Little Tern Colony, due in October; and Bloomsbury's RSPB Birding Year: Seasonal Tips and Activities to Learn About Bird Behaviour, due in October. Further interesting titles come from Princeton University Press with Bird Photographer of the Year, Collection 9 due in September (previous volumes were published by HarperCollins), and the paperback of How Birds Evolve: What Science Reveals about Their Origin, Lives & Diversity due in October.

For other animal groups, we have a few titles each. On the subject of mammals, Cambridge University Press will publish the fifth volume in their State of the Apes series, Disease, Health and Ape Conservation, this month while Academic Press recently published A Natural History of Bat Foraging: Evolution, Physiology, Ecology, Behavior, and Conservation. Two titles that are now in stock are Mammal Tracks of Europe: A Field Guide to the Tracks and Trails of European Mammals by David Wege, and Adventures Photographing Roe Deer by Robert C. Gregory, both of which are privately published. For herpetologists, we have one notable title: Reptiles of Oaxaca: Turtles, Crocodiles, Lizards and Snakes of Mexico's Most Biodiverse State, which has just been published by Edition Chimaira. For entomologists, then, we have Dragonflies of North America, due from Princeton University Press in October, and the just-published A Guide to Butterflies of Borneo from Natural History Publications Borneo.

For mycologists, we have three exciting books to look out for. The University of Chester Press has just released Biodiversity in the North West: The Puffballs, Earthballs and Other Gasteroid Fungi of Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and the Isle of Man and announced a reprint of the 2020 edition of The Myxomycetes of Britain and Ireland: An Identification Handbook, which is due in June. The third title is Richard Fortey's new book Close Encounters of the Fungal Kind: In Pursuit of Remarkable Mushrooms, due in July from HarperCollins.

On the subject of nature conservation and other environmental issues, we have five books this month. The American University in Cairo Press has just released The Ghosts of Iraq's Marshes: A History of Conflict, Tragedy, and Restoration while Allen & Unwin recently published The Forest Wars: The Ugly Truth About What's Happening in Our Tall Forests. The other three titles are paperback reissues of, respectively, The Heat Will Kill You First: Life and Death on a Scorched Planet, due in July from Back Bay Books; Reconnection: Fixing our Broken Relationship with Nature, due in July from Pelagic Publishing; and Crossings: How Road Ecology Is Shaping the Future of Our Planet, due in October from W.W. Norton.

A final miscellany of titles covers palaeontology and ecology. Princeton University Press has announced The Princeton Field Guide to Predatory Dinosaurs for November and The World Atlas of Deserts and Drylands for October, while NatureBureau will publish The Nature of the New Forest: Celebrating the Wildlife of a Working Common in October.

As always, if you are looking for a particular title that we do not yet have in our range, or you would like to suggest a title for NHBS to stock, please do get in touch.
