About the author

Luisa Ferreira Nunes, was born in Lisbon, Portugal and  studied forest ecology having a PhD in insect ecology.
 The passion for drawing and privacy of the notes of an observer of nature led to the idea that presents itself in the form of a diary with sketches were made in a simple manner and without a claim for too much detail.
 The shapes, the colours and impressions captured from observations made during field work can inspire one’s interest for naturalism. This inspiration may be motivated by everyday life observations of what surrounds us.
 The fifth edition of the Nature Journal (2013) celebrates Africa through Southern multicolour flora, the tropical forests, savannahs and deserts.
 As usual, some Nature Journal friends collaborated on this project, they are Pedro Vaz Pinto a conservationist who works hard to recover Sable Antelope populations in  Angola and Will Lawson from South Africa who presents sustainable solutions inspired by the African species and habitats.
