Interesting and unusual books from all over the world on all aspects of natural history, ecology and environmental science, including palaeontology & geology.
Also books on the history and culture of the islands of the Indian Ocean – home of the late lamented dodo.
Each page of the site has a nice dodo cartoon, like this one. They were created by Lucy and Anthony Cheke. Anthony seems to be a great guy. He says: From the mid-1960s until 1981 I worked in plant and animal ecology in Oxford, Thailand and Mauritius, with visits and expeditions to Japan, Corsica, Ethiopia and the Ivory Coast. He published a book about his project in Mauritius, opened the Dodo Books, and since the mid-1990s he has again been involved in ornithological travel and the ecological history & conservation of the Mascarene Islands. And his plans also include a new book on the way.
But there is more, he also kindly left his most recent publications available to download as PDFs on his page. Among the very interesting articles you will find more scientific information about dodos and “their” island, Mauritius.
