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 Complete Guide to Australian Birds
This book is a compact and the most up to date photographic guide to Australian birds available. Written in everyday language, with crisp, brilliant digital images taken in the wild, this authoritative guide includes the first entry and photograph of the previously believed extinct Night Parrot.
Beyond a field guide, this book is divided into 27 chapters, with each chapter opening with fascinating background information. The easily accessible information on each bird includes: common and scientific names, size, description, behaviour, preferred habitat, feeding habits, voice, status and breeding. Distribution maps are arranged next to the photographic illustrations of the bird. A binocular icon indicates ‘hot spots’ to find particular birds. All wild birds that have been regularly recorded on the Australian mainland, Tasmania and offshore continental islands and oceans, including sub-species where the differences are recognisable in the field, have been included and photographed.
