This essential guide to the natural history of New Zealand is both concise and comprehensive. It has the widest possible coverage and is the only concise text available. New Zealand's unique flora and fauna, which has evolved over many years of geographic isolation, is examined in detail. The information is presented in a logical and interesting way that is readily understandable to any reader. The text is organised into the main habitat regions, starting in the high mountains, progressing steadily to the sea and the offshore islands. In each region the habitat is discussed in detail, together with the main plant and animal species found there. Superbly illustrated throughout, this is an ideal introduction to New Zealand's natural history.
