KNNV Uitgeverij was set up more than 30 years ago by the Royal Dutch Society for Natural History, to boost public involvement with wildlife and conservation.
KNNV Uitgeverij describes its books as ‘essential tools for passionate enthusiasts and professional field naturalists’, with field guides, handbooks and atlases detailed enough to be used for environmental education, conservation and research.
A brief taster of titles would include: Atlas of European Dragonflies and Damselflies, Salamanders of the Old World, Hoverflies of Northwest Europe, and the Fish Atlas of the Celtic Sea, North Sea and Baltic Sea.
Veldgids Korstmossen [Field Guide to Lichens] is the first field guide to the lichen flora of the Netherlands and Flanders, while Veldgids Nederlandse Flora [Field Guide to Dutch Flora] describes more than 2,000 plant species found in the Netherlands.
Other Dutch-language titles include the Handleidingen voor Natuurbeheer [Handbooks for Nature Management] Series, which include titles on heathland management, and on managing habitat for wading birds.
The Royal Dutch Society for Natural History was founded in 1901 and has had the Royal title since 1951.
