PUBLICATIONS

THE BIOTIME LOG by Maddy Harland (illustrated by Jane Bottomley). Biotime, or biological time, runs at a very different pace and rhythm to human time. Create a record of your own local natural world and its rhythms and mysteries! It is a ready-made book that will last for years in which to note your day-to-day observations. There are no days or years, just the dates of each month with two days allocated to each page. This allows you to record events by first adding the year at the beginning of each of your entries. Your observations will build a growing picture and deepen your connection with the natural world around you, your understanding of its cycles, and your appreciation of your local ecosystems.
