Natural history is not a *true* monthly so issue number does not equal
*month*.  The publication information states "...published monthly except
for combined issues in July/August and December/January."  v. 111 (2002)
consisted of 10 issues.  The July/Aug. issue was no. 6 and the Dec./Jan.
issue was  no. 10.  2003 appears to be following the same publication
schedule.  The Oct. issue was misprinted as no. 9 and should be no. 8.
Let's hope the publisher corrects the numbering so that the Nov. issue is
correctly numbered "9". The past year of numbered issues should be:

v. 112, no. 8 (2003 Oct.) (misprinted as no. 9)
v. 112, no. 7 (2003 Sept.)
v. 112, no. 6 (2003 July/Aug.)
v. 112, no. 5 (2003 June)
v. 112, no. 4 (2003 May)
v. 112, no. 3 (2003 Apr.)
v. 112, no. 2 (2003 Mar.)
v. 112, no. 1 (2003 Feb.)
v. 111, no. 10 (2002 Dec./2003Jan.)
v. 111, no. 9 (2002 Nov.)

You mean that 09/03 is 112:7, right? Yes, I noticed that too, but haven't
had a chance to call and ask about it.

Ours has the same typos on the contents pages of both issues.  However,
the number of the month  (which serves as the issue number, since this is a
monthly periodical with volumes corresponding to calendar years) is given
correctly on the cover, in both cases, I would simply ignore the
(You might want to write or E-mail the staff of Natural History to make
them aware of the mistake, if they aren't already alerted to it.)
