    Birds of New Zealand
    New Zealand boasts exceptional species of birds; a quarter of the birdlife lives nowhere else on the planet. With the concerted focus on bird recovery, through sanctuaries, the Department of Conservation and volunteer groups, native birds are abundant, and those struggling species are continually growing in population. Rob Suisted has captured these beautiful birds in remarkable, vibrant photographs, with individual portraits and habitat shots. The four main habitats - forest, wetlands, sea and coast, and open country are introduced by Alison Dench's thoroughly researched text. Extended captions accompany each photograph. This attractive, colourful book is a wonderful expression of New Zealand's most interesting birdlife.

  • Field Guide to New Zealand Geology
    Field Guide to New Zealand Geology
    This is the first field guide written for the general public and beginners in geology in New Zealand. Now fully revised and updated, it shows travellers in New Zealand something of the tremendous variety of our rocks, minerals and fossils and describes what to look for in many areas where rock formations are prominent. It covers the history of New Zealand from its beginnings on the sea floor some 600 million years ago to its present patchwork landscape of volcano, range and plain. This land was formed from many different layers of rock - volcanic flows, forest debris, ocean mud. All these have special characteristics, which are explained and illustrated to enable readers to find the layers and understand their origins and what they can tell us about the landscapes of the past. The crystals that grew in the rocks and the remains of living creatures that were preserved are also illustrated and described. Written in simplified terms, it includes an introductory chapter on general geology, A geological time chart and quick reference maps of the North Island and the South Island for travellers.

  • Godwits
    Godwits
    Godwits: Long-haul champions, an enchanting, wonderfully illustrated book by shorebird expert Keith Woodley, tells the miraculous story of the godwits and their migrations - why and how they do it. It follows the birds on their intrepid journeys, examining the places they visit, be it an estuary in northern New Zealand, a mudflat on the Chinese-North Korean border, or a tundra nesting site in Alaska. Woodley, respected godwit expert and manager of the Miranda Shorebird Centre, details the amazing changes these birds undergo before their departure - from moulting into new plumage, to doubling their weight and shrinking non-essential body organs - as well as outlines their array of innate skills in weather prediction and global navigation. Incorporating the author's own eye-witness accounts as well as meticulous research, this tale of navigation and stunning fortitude is written in a compelling yet accessible style that will appeal to both professional bird watchers and general readers curious to discover more about one of nature's quiet achievers.

  • Natural History of Banks Peninsula
    Natural History of Banks Peninsula
    Banks Peninsula, treasured by Christchurch city dwellers, peninsula residents and visitors from afar, is a unique volcanic landform jutting eastwards into the Pacific from the otherwise unsurprising Canterbury Plains. Once forested from side to side, and from sea to summits, the land was stripped of nearly all its trees, and much of its original wildlife, by two great waves of colonisation, Polynesian and European. Much indigenous biodiversity remains, however, and native forest cover is increasing. This book traces what happened, and presents a concise and up-to-date summary of today's landscape, vegetation and wildlife. The text is accompanied by stunning photographs and charming drawings, as well as by figures, tables and full checklists of species. Natural History of Banks Peninsula, now in this revised edition, is essential reading for locals and visitors alike. For the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, which sponsored its publication, the book is part of a mission to disseminate information and foster the protection and restoration of the region's special natural values.

  • New Zealand's Rivers an Environmental History
    New Zealand's Rivers an Environmental History
    'New Zealand s Rivers: An environmental history' explores the relationship between New Zealanders and their rivers, explaining how they have arrived at a crisis point, where fresh water has become their most contested resource and many rivers are too polluted to swim in. Environmental historian Catherine Knight reveals that the tension between exploitation and enjoyment of rivers is not new. Rivers were treasured by Maori as food baskets and revered as the dwelling places of supernatural creatures. But following European settlement, they became drains for mining, industrial waste and sewage, and were harnessed to generate power and to irrigate farmland. Over time, the utilitarian view of rivers has been increasingly questioned by those who value rivers for recreation as well as for ecological, spiritual and cultural reasons. Today, the sustainable use of rivers is the subject of intense debate. Thoroughly researched and richly illustrated, 'New Zealand s Rivers' is an accessible and compelling read for all New Zealanders, including anglers, kayakers, farmers, environmental practitioners, policy-makers, students and anyone with an interest in our environment and history."
