The Nokomis Group
The Nokomis Group is owned and operated by Noleen Glavish and commenced trading in 1990 as a specialist publisher of high quality natural history books, portfolios, prints, gift cards and original artworks by Australian natural history artists.
We have now expanded to include a NEW BOOKS division in addition to those published by the Nokomis Group. This came about in April 2018 as Andrew and Belinda Isles who own Andrew Isles Natural History Books made a decision to retreat from stocking new books and are concentrating on Antiquarian and Second hand books. This new division is primarily a mail order business selling natural history books and we ship worldwide. Our stock holding is substantial and if you click on the New Books tab above, you will see that we are offering a comprehensive range of natural history new books which is predominantly Australian but covers all parts of the globe.
Natural history subjects include birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, botany, gardening, ecology, insects, marine, biology, aviculture, entomology and conservation. We are constantly adding new titles and will be happy to source any titles which may interest you if they are not already listed.
Regular mailings are sent to clients and if you wish to be on the list, please complete the subscribe form.
The Beauty of Numbers in Nature: Mathematical Patterns and Principles from the Natural World
Think of a zebra’s stripes, the complexities of a spider’s web, the uniformity of desert dunes, or the spirals in a sunflower head … think of a snowflake.
The Beauty of Numbers in Nature shows how life on Earth forms the principles of mathematics. Starting with the simplest patterns, each chapter looks at a different kind of patterning system and the mathematics that underlies it. In doing so The Beauty of Numbers in Nature also uncovers some universal patterns, both in nature and man-made, from the basic geometry of ancient Greece to the visually startling fractals that we are familiar with today.
