  • Totara: a Natural and Cultural History
    Totara: a Natural and Cultural History
    The 'mighty totara' is one of our most extraordinary trees. Among the biggest and oldest trees in the New Zealand forest, the heart of Maori carving and culture, trailing no. 8 wire as fence posts on settler farms, clambered up in the Pureora protests of the 1980s: the story of New Zealand can be told through t?tara. Simpson tells that story like nobody else could. In words and pictures, through waka and leaves, farmers and carvers, he takes us deep inside the trees: their botany and evolution, their role in Maori life and lore, their uses by Pakeha, and their current status in our environment and culture. By doing so, Simpson illuminates the natural world and the story of Maori and Pakeha in this country. Our largest trees, the kauri Tane Mahuta and the t?tara Pouakani, are both thought to be around 1000 years old. They were here before we humans were and their relatives will probably be here when we are gone. T?tara has been central to life in this country for thousands of years. This book tells a great tree's story, and that is our story too.

  • 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.
