  • New Zealand Inventory of Biodiversity
    New Zealand Inventory of Biodiversity
    New Zealand is the first country to have compiled a checklist of its entire living and fossil biota. This trilogy provides a review and inventory of New Zealand's entire living and fossil biodiversity - an international effort involving 238 New Zealand and overseas specialists and the most comprehensive of its kind in the world. Together, the three volumes list every one of the approximately 56,120 living and 14,700 fossil species of New Zealand's plants, animal, fungi, and micro-organisms. These volumes are affiliated with Species 2000, an international scientific project with the long-term goal of enumerating all described species on Earth into one seamless list - the Catalogue of Life, a kind of online biological telephone directory.

  • 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."

  • Ocean Notorious
    Ocean Notorious
    For lovers of exciting non-fiction about remote and rarely visited places - and maritime adventures. True first-person stories of the Southern Ocean from NZ to Antarctica - the windiest, roughest, most isolated body of water on earth. * Can be compared with: * Simon Winchester's Atlantic * Johnny Wray's South Sea Vagabonds - a 2014 NZ bestseller * Joan Druett's Island of the Lost * Bruce Chatwin's classic In Patagonia. Motivated and media-savvy author & perennially popular genre The Southern Ocean is Earth's most notorious body of water. It circles Antarctica, acts as a violent mixer of wind and water, links all other oceans, is feared by sailors and explorers - and is mostly ignored by the rest of the world. Human influence is minimal; the idea of settlement is absurd. There are only widely scattered outposts of people who have come ashore intentionally and temporarily - or have been shipwrecked or abandoned. The author is an intrepid sailor who has guided and spun stories on many southern ocean voyages to Antarctica and subantarctic islands and led the Artists in Antarctica Programme.

  • Photographic Guide to Birds of New Zealand
    Photographic Guide to Birds of New Zealand
    Initially published as the first New Zealand title in a successful international series, Geoff Moon's compact yet comprehensive guide to birds has gone on to become a bestseller in this country, with sales now exceeding 20,000 copies. In this fully revised edition with attractive new cover, species accounts have been updated according to the 4th edition of the Ornithological Society's official "Checklist of the Birds of New Zealand". The many changes include updates to classification, distribution and population status. Maori names have now also been added for all species, where applicable. Although not intended to take the place of a more in-depth field guide, the book features photographs of the most commonly seen birds along with detailed information on distribution, habitat, behaviour and breeding. Each bird is illustrated with at least one colour photograph to aid identification, and in many cases photographs also show the birds in their habitat - nesting, feeding and socialising.

  • Photographic Guide to Ferns of New Zealand
    Photographic Guide to Ferns of New Zealand
    Ferns occur in great abundance in New Zealand - there are nearly 200 native species alone occurring everywhere from the coast through to the country's alpine regions. Then there are the fern allies - including clubmosses and forkferns that have an even longer fossil history than ferns. However, most of the ferns and fern allies described in this guide are the commoner species that are more likely to be seen when journeying around the New Zealand countryside. For ease of reference the common names are highlighted in the text although all species described are listed according to their scientific names so that their affinities with related species may be seen more easily.

  • Photographic Guide to Spiders of New Zealand
    Photographic Guide to Spiders of New Zealand
    Spiders are found everywhere in New Zealand, from bathroom to bush, beach and beyond, and although many people find them distasteful, they are valuable predators of pests and fascinating components of any ecosystem. This new guide introduces over 90 species, focusing on the more commonplace introduced spiders but also featuring some of our rare native species. It gives details on their taxonomy, geographical origins, range and preferred habitat, plus special notes on behaviour, life cycle or diet. A handful of our spiders are well known - the katipo for its feared bite, the elusive Nelson cave spider for its great size - but few have been much studied until recently. Respected arachnologist Cor Vink brings his scholarship and expertise to the text, while Bryce McQuillan's photography presents the spiders with extraordinary clarity and detail, making this an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in our eight-legged neighbours.

  • Plant Life on Banks Peninsula
    Plant Life on Banks Peninsula
    This book details the extraordinary past and present of Banks Peninsula plant life, using vivid drawings and photographs, clear maps, and entertaining text. It will appeal to keen plants people and professional botanists alike. Author and illustrator, eminent botanist Hugh Wilson has lived most of his life on or near the Peninsula. This book is the culmination of 30 years work, a labour of love designed to inform and delight a wider public about the richly diverse plants of Banks Peninsula. Banks Peninsula is a remarkable volcanic landform jutting into the Pacific from the eastern flank of New Zealand's South Island. Once forested, the land was stripped of nearly all its trees and much of its original wildlife by two consecutive tsunamis of human colonisation, Polynesian and European. However, the Peninsula remains a unique, biodiverse landscape on the doorstep of the South Island's largest city, Christchurch. Against all odds it continues to sustain an astonishing array of flora and fauna.
