    West Coast Walking: a Naturalist's Guide
    The West Coast of New Zealand's South Island arguably boasts the greatest range of the country's natural attractions. From the warm, temperate nikau palm forests at Karamea to the cool beech forests of Haast, from the alpine heights of Arthur's Pass to the dramatic Paparoa coast, glaciers that descend into valleys filled with unique podocarp rainforests, plus pristine lakes and lagoons - the West Coast has it all. New Zealand is a centre of endemicity, with over 80% of our native non-marine birds, reptiles, flowering plants, gymnosperms, land-snails and insects restricted to this country, and hundreds of those species are found on the West Coast. The Coast is an essential destination for any overseas naturalist or bird-watcher, and a place New Zealanders interested in nature should return to time and again. This remote part of the country is New Zealand as tourists and many Kiwis imagine it to be. Remote and wild it may seem, yet most of its natural attractions are accessible from sealed roads and well-formed paths, some even wheelchair accessible.
    This book presents an introduction to the West Coast's physical environment, plants and animals, and a guide to the walks, lakes and highways of the region. Short easy paths are described in some detail, along with the plants, animals and natural features to look for along the way. Longer, more demanding trails are described in less detail. The lakes and lagoons are best explored by kayak, and guidance is given for the paddling naturalist.

  • Why Science Is Sexist
    Why Science Is Sexist
    In June 2015, Nobel Laureate Tim Hunt resigned from the Faculty of Life Sciences at University College London after making a dismissive remark about female scientists.The incident is just the tip of the iceberg, argues Nicola Gaston, President of the New Zealand Association of Scientists. In this timely BWB Text, she scrutinises the sexism afflicting the discipline of science, from the under-representation of women to the 'scientific' argument that mental capabilities are gendered. Ultimately, she asks what can be done to combat unconscious bias in science - and to ensure that the future of scientific inquiry is both balanced and objective.
