On 18 October, the book 'Niet zonder elkaar' (Not without each other) was awarded the Jan Wolkersprijs for best nature book.

'Not without each other - flowers and insects'

A writers' collective led by professor Louis Schoonhoven wrote the best nature book of the year. Louis Schoonhoven was a professor in entomology at Wageningen University from 1972 to 1991. The beautiful, colourful book focuses on the relationship between flowers and their pollinators. The awarding jury compared the book with Jac P. Thijsse's book, Flowers and her friends (Bloemen en haar vrienden, 1934). Both books are available via Wageningen UR Library. Other publications from Louis Schoonhoven can be found in Wageningen UR Staff Publications.
