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.
In mid 2018, we expanded to include a NEW BOOKS division in addition to those published by the Nokomis Group. This came about 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.
In October 2019, we have finally commenced our Bargain Books tab above. You will be able to browse these very well priced books and order them by clicking on the Tab and browsing! It has been a long time coming!
Regular mailings are sent to clients and if you wish to be on the list, please complete the subscribe form.
Honey and Pollen Flora of South-eastern Australia
Understanding the biology of flora and its value to honey bees is core knowledge for successful beekeeping. Bees feed on nectar and pollen. No food equals no bees!
Beekeepers need to know the floral resources around them, and the nutritional value of those resources to bees, to keep their bee colonies healthy.
This publication focuses on the value of plants to nectarivores, and honey bees in particular. The result of over 30 years of research, it distills both scientific knowledge and the opinions of hundreds of beekeepers into a reference work that will be the cornerstone of floral understanding in apiculture for years to come.
