Gratis Books

The aim of this scheme is to provide ecology and conservation books to those from outside Western Europe, North America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand who would otherwise be unable to obtain them. The simple purpose of this scheme is to spread ecological knowledge as widely as possible. This scheme is a collaboration between the British Ecological Society (who pay for the postage), the NHBS (who co-ordinate and organise the distribution) and the publishers and authors of the books (who provide the books for free).
