Siri Scientific Press

Fossils in stone, fossils in amber, dinosaurs, insects, specialised field guides - all come under Siri Scientific Press’ quirky but high quality orbit.  

Siri Scientific Press has made a name for itself publishing academically rigorous scientific books and monographs dealing with natural history for a general readership, which are likely to be too unprofitable to tempt larger publishers. Just a few titles give a taste of the imprint’s quirkiness: Fossil Insects, Trilobites of the World, Spider Research in the Twenty-First Century, Western Indian Ocean Tortoises, Fossils of the Whitby Coast, Field Guide to Butterflies of the Gambia - in many cases giving young or specialised academics a rare chance to publish for a general readership.

The publisher’s logo includes a line drawing by Richard Hartley of a fossil insect wing belonging to a lacewing species Sympherobious siriae preserved in Baltic amber.
