Product Description

Fascinating reading and spectacular photography of the natural world.

Amazon.com Review

Published by New York's treasured American Museum of Natural History, Natural History gives a monthly peek into current goings-on in the broad realm of natural history and science. Dinosaur buffs, world travelers, animal lovers, stargazers, birders, and history fanatics alike will find articles and photographs to pique their interests. Less weighty than its chief peer, National Geographic, Natural History takes the armchair traveler into the world of bugs, archeological excavations, and the rest of the universe. Without ever reading like a specialized journal, the magazine creates an intelligent and in-depth discussion of each topic, and articles are illustrated with photographs, drawings, charts, and maps. Perhaps because National Geographic covers so much cultural and physical ground, Natural History features more focused articles on scientific discovery. Still, it's a glimpse into a vast world, and a good substitute for a monthly visit to the Museum of Natural History. --Gilia Angell

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest Popular Magazine on Natural History November 19, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
"Natural History" is the official popular journal published by the American Museum of Natural History, the oldest - and largest - museum of natural history in the Western Hemisphere and without question, one of the world's greatest museums. In its pages it has featured brilliant essays by the likes of Roy Chapman Andrews, Margaret Mead, and Stephen Jay Gould, to name but a few of the many eminent scientists - both museum staff and outsiders - who have contributed superb articles on natural history to this magazine. It has retained an emphasis on scientific discovery, publishing articles pertaining to ecology and other aspects of evolutionary biology (including paleobiology), geology, astrophysics, archaeology and anthropology. Recent issues have included brief articles on biomechanics of various living organisms, those pertaining to recent and current exhibitions such as the Petra exhibition on display at the museum from the Fall of 2003 to early Summer 2004, and current ecological and anthropological research. Current museum scientists, most notably Neil deGrasse Tyson, the director of the Hayden Planetarium, often report in these pages on their ongoing research as well as on issues of a more general nature that might interest a scientifically-literate public. And to its credit, it has not shied away from controversy, publishing for example, an issue on so-called "Intelligent Design", which is seen by its adherents as a competing scientific alternative to evolution via Natural Selection, but lacks any scientific credibility from professional scientists, science educators and like-minded members of the general public.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Articles May 27, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is an outstanding journal. The articles are diverse, informative, and current. Other than possibly Scientific American, there is not better journal for the life sciences.
An earlier reviewer critized the journal for not using the metric system. Personally, I do not find this to be a problem with a journal which is primarly qualitative and not quantitative.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going down hill July 7, 2008
By Pitt
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I used to really like this magazine, but it seems to be going down hill very rapidly now. It is about half the size it used to be, and contains way too much advertising. I suspect that the reason is that Stephen J. Gould's column is what made the magazine so popular, until he quit writing it before he died. I will definitely be letting my subscription expire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Semi-Popular Journal On Natural History June 4, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a great magazine: I call it semi-popular because it is occasionally technical and often referenced in scientific works, but it is very accessible and readable to the inquisitive member of the general public. If you have any interest in life on earth, do yourself a favor and subscribe.
