Issue 21

In the autumn issue we showcase some of the beautiful images that have made it into the 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.

We also celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Museum at Tring, and commemorate 100 years since the start of World War One.

Plus, we explore the practice of taxidermy through the ages, from its crude beginnings to its recent resurgence in popularity.

Finally, wildlife and nature photographer Anup Shah explains how he is inspired by the Museum.

Regular features
  • Forgotten naturalists: we take a look at men and women who made their mark in the scientific and natural world through skill, determination and by overcoming the odds.
  • Science in the field: we reveal the latest research carried out by scientists worldwide.
  • Inside story: our scientists take the hot seat to discuss their work at the cutting-edge of the natural sciences.
  • Wildlife Garden: we unearth the diversity of the flora and fauna in the Museum's tranquil urban oasis.
