There are a small number of Forum publications which are not included in the main headings of Technical Reports, Papers and Monologues.
The Forum sponsors an occasional Stephen Warburton Memorial Lecture, in memory of a dear friend and colleague who sadly died in January 2004.
The first Memorial Lecture was delivered by Dr Henry Chapman, University of Hull, on the Neolithic trackway recently discovered on Hatfield Moors. A CD version of the lecture is now available @ £5.00 plus £1.50 post & packing.
Please note that Microsoft Powerpoint is needed to display the contents of the CD.
Alternatively a pdf overview of the lecture is available for download (3.41MB)
Unpublished Forum Reports
Before the numbered Technical Reports series were introduced in 1999 reports issued by the Forum, or produced for it, had been done individually, and lacked a numbering system at any level. All were unpublished, and mostly emanated from survey work in 1990-91, although a further report of this type appeared in 2001. They comprise the following:
J. Holland (1991) Vegetation Survey of Thorne, Crowle and Hatfield Moors 1990. Parts 1 and 2. A report of a survey carried out on behalf of the Forum. [Thorne].
D. Heaver and B. Eversham (1991) Thorne & Hatfield Moors Invertebrate Survey. Final Report and Appendices. Two volumes. A report of a survey carried out on behalf of the Forum. [Thorne].
C. Bain (1991) Thorne & Hatfield Moors Ornithological Survey 1990/1991. A report of a survey produced by the RSPB East Midlands Region on behalf of the Forum. Lincoln.

The original insect inventory of Thorne Moors
The Forum’s second Monograph, ‘An Inventory of the Invertebrates of Thorne and Hatfield Moors’, presents a comprehensive and scholarly summary of the invertebrate fauna of the Humberhead Peatlands. The insect component of the Monograph had two precursors, detailing separately the insects of Thorne Moors (supplement to Sorby Record No. 23) and Hatfield Moors (THMCF Technical Report No. 7). The Thorne list, published in 1987 by the Sorby Natural History Society, is also available from the Forum. It includes the following sections:
