The entire back content of Journal of Zoology has been digitized and is now available online. Including the previous publications, Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London and the Transactions of the Zoological Society of London, the archive impressively spans over 180 years and contains work from many of the greatest contributors to zoology.

In his Editorial announcing the archive, Reviews Editor, Steven Le Comber says, “it is fascinating to see how the journal has reflected the major events in modern biology – the publication of the Origin of the Species, Mendel and the birth of genetics, the discovery of the structure of DNA, the development of modern molecular methods.”

Why not take some time to browse this new online archive and immerse yourself in the history of one of the most influential journals of our time.
