The Natural Histories Project

"Natural history is a practice and a body of knowledge....Attention to and representation of nature, a focus on patterns observed at the organismal to landscape level, the value of accuracy.

The Natural Histories Project explores experiences and values that combine to create a wide range of natural histories, and through this exploration, we hope to initiate an international conversation on the value and future of Natural History.

We invite you to join the conversation. Spread the word, put your own comments on the site, and tell us what speaks to you."
