    Title: Tuatara
    Author: CREE ALISON

    Pick up virtually any textbook on vertebrate evolution and you will find mention of the curious reptile known as tuatara (Sphenodon). The special evolutionary status of tuatara as the last of the rhynchocephalians - one of the four orders of living reptiles - is unquestioned. Wild members of the sole living species are now restricted to a few dozen remote islands around the New Zealand coast, where for several centuries they have been observed and studied by humans. But are tuatara really unchanged 'living fossils', or close relatives of dinosaurs, as sometimes portrayed? This is the first detailed monograph for decades about this enigmatic reptile, and the first to be illustrated in colour throughout. The evolution, natural history and conservation of tuatara are covered in comprehensive detail, providing a valuable resource for the specialist yet in a style accessible to a wide readership. The special place of tuatara in Maori and popular culture is also considered. Tuatara have survived alongside humans for more than 700 years, though with their numbers much reduced; what are their future prospects in a globally changing world?

    ISBN: 9781877517914
    Title: Tui: a Nest in the Bush

    TUI is an intimate and rare look at the beginning of a tuis life. It is presented as a series of photographs showing the 37-day development of a pair of tui from eggs to fledglings. The author is a photographer living at Lake Tarawera, surrounded by native forest and an abundant variety of bird life. One spring morning in 2011 Meg noticed a tui disappear into a Pseudopanax bush with a twig in its mouth, and discovered that the nest, while well hidden from below, could be seen from her balcony. By carefully removing some leaves from the bush she was able to get a clear view of the nest, giving her a rare opportunity to visually record the beginning of a tuis life. The journal entries that accompany the photographs describe how the author spent many hours talking to the tui while it was sitting on the two eggs, hoping that the bird would become familiar with her voice and learn to trust her. This also enabled her to observe the variety of food that was being fed to the chicks, and how the parents always returned to the nest with food via the same trees. The growth and development of tui chicks has never been photographed in this way before, and this fascinating account will be of great interest not only to those with a particular interest in ornithology, but to everyone who enjoys the native bird life in their gardens.

    Title: Vanishing Nature: Facing Nz's Biodiversity Crisis

    This full colour, soft cover publication is suitable for both a general and a technical audience with user friendly language and lots of images.

    New Zealand’s remarkable indigenous biodiversity is fragile and it’s in crisis. Our economic institutions promote biodiversity loss by not accounting for environmental costs and our laws and policies are unable to prevent the resulting ongoing losses. The design and implementation of policy and programmes that safeguard ecosystems require both an understanding of political, economic and social factors influencing biodiversity protection as well as being founded on established ecological principles.

    The book presents an exhaustive analysis of New Zealand’s biodiversity loss and its conservation. The authors argue that the fundamental drivers of harm as well as the barriers to effective protection must be addressed if we are to halt the loss of our native species and ecosystems and maintain our natural capital. This will require novel economic institutions designed to bring private and public interests toward alignment. The book includes a comprehensive suite of strategic, tactical and practical solutions and finishes with a vision and action plan that EDS is committed to champion in the coming years. Biodiversity loss is not inevitable, it is a choice.

    ISBN: 9781927213490
    Title: Vernacular: the Everyday Landscapes of NZ

    As long as people have lived in New Zealand, they have left traces of all kinds upon the land: stone walls, sculpted earthforms, urban benches, farm fences, boardwalks, walls, steps and drains. These everyday parts of our landscape form the backdrop to our lives, but are a frequently overlooked and underappreciated part of our cultural legacy.

    Landscape designer Philip Smith and photographer David Straight have travelled the length and breadth of New Zealand to document a wonderful diversity of forms and objects that make up our everyday landscape. Far from being ordinary, these landscape features often display a considerable degree of invention and innovation, and great aesthetic appeal.

    These landscape features sometimes have a large scale, as is the case in the beautiful steps and paths of Kauaeranga Valley on the Coromandel Peninsula, or the long sinuous water races of Central Otago. But just as much, these built objects are often modest and small – benches, manhole covers, bike racks and suburban gates.

    Fascinating, idiosyncratic, often beautiful, Vernacular is a unique book, created out of the authors’ desire to record and value a very distinct part of the landscape we inhabit, and the cultural legacy of Aotearoa/New Zealand.

    Visitation: Earthquakes of 1848 & the Destruction of Wellington

    Title: Visitation: Earthquakes of 1848 & the Destruction of Wellington

    'It is my most painful duty to inform your Excellency that a terrible calamity has overtaken this province. An earthquake has occurred, and the town of Wellington is in ruins.' Lieutenant Governor John Eyre to Sir George Grey, 19 October 1848 Wellington was only a fledgling settlement of some 3000 people when it was struck by a cluster of devastating earthquakes in 1848. The fearful violence of the shocks, the destruction of property, and the frequency and continuance of the danger caused universal alarm, and it was feared the settlement and its future was ruined. But Wellington did recover, quite quickly. The British immigrants were not going to be deterred after coming halfway around the world, and in any case, most had nothing to go home to. Their direct accounts of the earthquake and its aftermath make compelling reading. Along with describing the effects of the 1848 earthquakes and the social response to them, THE VISITATION also explains their cause - the relationship between earthquakes and movement on fault lines, first discovered in the late 1880's by the celebrated New Zealand geologist, Alexander McKay, following a large earthquake in North Canterbury on 1 September 1888. It also discusses the fault that ruptured during the first great shock of the 1848 earthquakes; what remains of the 1848 rupture today and its relation to large earthquakes in the past; and the geological context of the 1848 earthquakes as products of the convergence of two great tectonic plates through the Marlborough-North Canterbury area of the South Island of New Zealand; and ends with a possible scenario of a future large earthquake in Wellington generated by movement of the Wellington Fault.

    Title: Volcanoes of Auckland: A Field Guide

    A fully illustrated field guide for Aucklanders and visitors to take with them out among the 53 volcanoes that shape this city. Volcanoes of Auckland is a handy field guide to the fiery natural world that so deeply shapes New Zealand's largest city - from Rangitoto to One Tree Hill, Lake Pupuke to Orakei Basin. For tens of thousands of years, volcanoes have profoundly shaped the area's geology and geography. And for hundreds of years, volcanoes have played a key part in the lives of Maori and Pakeha - as sites for pa, kumara gardens or twentieth-century military fortifications, as sources of stone and water, and now as parks and reserves for all to enjoy. In a new format designed for the backpack (and including three newly recognised craters), the field guide features an accessible introduction to the science of eruptions, including dating and the next eruption, a history of M?ori and Pakeha uses of the volcanoes, an illustrated guide to each of Auckland's 53 volcanoes, including where to go and what to do, aerial photography, maps and historic photographs- over 400 illustrations, 80% of them new. This field guide will help readers engage afresh with the history, geography and geology of Auckland's unique volcanic landscape. How many volcanoes are there? When did they erupt and how do we know? Will there be another eruption in Auckland and, if so, where and when? Will we have sufficient warning to evacuate in time? What is a lava cave, a volcanic bomb or a tuff ring? Why were Auckland's volcanoes such an attraction to early Maori? Why is it that Auckland's freshest water comes out of our volcanoes? This book answers these and many more questions. Volcanoes of Auckland is the essential guide for locals and tourists, school children and scientists, as they climb up Mt Eden or North Head and take in the volcanic landscape that so shapes life in our city.

    Author: LESTER PHIL

    They¿re ranked one of the world¿s worst invasive species. They¿re often described as pure evil. People use petrol bombs, flamethrowers and shotguns on them in acts of vengeance.
    Wasps are feared and hated by many of us, with good reason ¿ they sting. For anyone who is allergic to their venom, a sting can mean a trip to hospital; for a very unlucky few, it can mean death. Wasps also place massive pressure on New Zealand¿s biodiversity, especially on native birds, plants and insects, including our much-loved honey bees. They cause huge economic losses, estimated at more than $100 million each year.
    Native to Europe, Vespula vulgaris, the common wasp, has been inadvertently transported around the globe ¿ usually travelling quietly, unseen, sleeping in people¿s cargo. Today in New Zealand, the highest known wasp densities have up to 40 nests per hectare.

    Title: Wally's Glasshouse Gardening for New Zealand

    For over 20 years Wally has been writing gardening articles for various newspapers through out New Zealand and during much of that time ran a garden centre and a nursery for supplying plants to the garden centre. He has gone from using various chemical controls to being very opposed to the use of the same, at least in his local environment.

    After semi-retirement, Wally now writes gardening articles and supplies a range of Safe-to-Use or organic type products to garden centres and by mail order to gardeners.

    Wally has come to believe...

    "...that we have far too many chemicals in our food chain and in our day to day living and it is these chemicals which have become more commonly available in the last 50 odd years that are causing the great increase in cancer, arthritis and a number of other health problems that affect far too many people.

    "The health of babies and children are even more adversely affected because their bodies are developing and more susceptible to harmful chemicals and their effects."

    Title: Weed Control Handbook

    A weed is a plant growing where it's not wanted. Invasive weeds are an increasing problem in New Zealand with individual species variously affecting agriculture, health, recreational areas and industry. Many of the invasive weeds causing environmental damage start off as ornamental plants in gardens, and become a problem when they 'jump the fence'. In this handbook, garden weeds that are a distinct nuisance to gardeners are examined first, and then the book moves on to target those weeds that threaten our native ecosystems - and yet are quite familiar to most gardeners. Two and sometimes three photographs identify each weedy plant and clear concise headings urge readers to Know it, Understand it, Control it and Replace it. The book divides weeds into herbs, grasses, vines, shrubs and trees with clear technical guidelines regarding the use of herbicides and the disposal of weed waste.

    Based on the popular international Te Papa exhibition "Whales: Giants of the Deep," this resource brings these majestic marine mammals and their underwater world to life, with a special focus on the whales and dolphins of the South Pacific. From the first richly illustrated chapter, readers are immersed in the salty sea to explore their amazing diversity, biology, and adaption to life in the oceans. Throughout the book, hundreds of breathtaking photographs, historical images, astonishing facts and figures, and informative illustrations and diagrams bring the whale world to life. It also includes stories from people whose lives have been inextricably linked with whales--from legendary South Pacific whale riders to international whale scientists and from conservationists to former whalers and their families. For centuries whales have captured imaginations and ignited emotions; humans have revered and mythologized them, hunted them to the brink of extinction, and passionately protected them, and this book is a powerful combination of storytelling, science, and culture that reveals the relationship between whales and people.

    Images of pristine forests, mountain ranges, untameable rivers and empty expanses of coastline are the key attraction in how we promote Aotearoa New Zealand internationally: '100% Pure' no less. Such wildness is at this nation's psychological and physical core. This book searches for an understanding of 'the wild', of what makes wilderness such an important part of our psyche. The seventeen essays come from trampers, scientists, conservationists, policy-makers, photographers, historians, and writers. Together they examine many aspects of the idea of wilderness. What and where is New Zealand's wilderness? Is the wilderness something that we lock up or not? How do Maori see wilderness? How is it defined by law and what is government policy? Why? Where does that leave us? What do we want of wilderness? Can we exploit its resources? Wild Heart looks forward, as exploring the 'possibility' of wilderness lies at its core. What could wilderness in Aotearoa New Zealand become, and, consequently, what might we its people also become?

    Title: Zealandia: The Valley That Changed a Nation
    Author: LYNCH JAMES

    It is 30 years since the publication of Natural Wellington- a plan, initiated by Jim Lynch to “Bring back the birds to Wellington city”. It is 28 years since Jim Lynch proposed the Karori Sanctuary- The world’s first predator fenced community eco-sanctuary.
    It is almost 25 years since the formation of the Karori Sanctuary Trust. It is 20 years since the predator proof fence at karori was constructed.
    Zealandia was the centrepiece of three big ideas in 1990/92: urban conservation, fenced eco-sanctuaries and community conservation. All three have proven to be highly successful.
    Now known as Zealandia, the sanctuary is widely regarded as a success. It is achieving its restoration goals, is a centre of community engagement, a learning and research hub, a major visitor attraction, and is now an economic success story. It is now nearly self-funding and returning great economic benefits to the city.
    Zealandia was an original vision which was far ahead of its time and has been widely copied. After 30years, the innovative business model and concept have been proven to work.
    Zealandia has just been selected by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 greatest places in the world to visit, based on key factors, including quality, originality, sustainability, innovation and influence. https://time.com/collection/worlds-greatest-places-2019/5654152/zealandia-wellington-new-zealand/
    It has been the catalyst for the return of missing species to Wellington city and has inspired the city to pursue goals which have made Wellington a “Biophilic city” and one of the few places where biodiversity is increasing.
    Zealandia launched a national community eco-sanctuary movement. Since 2000, 31 fenced sanctuary’s and 80 community sanctuaries with similar objectives emerged and are now protecting 44,000 ha of high biodiversity value land on the mainland. The community eco-sanctuaries have collectively brought many tens of thousands of people and hundreds of millions of dollars into conservation and protected many threatened species. It is the major development in conservation during this century. It also inspired the current “Predator Free NZ” movement.
    The book traces the 30-year journey of Zealandia; starting with how the idea was conceived, and following an incredible story of overcoming the odds to get the support and funding needed to build the fence, eradicate the pests, restore species to the valley and develop the enterprise to meet a range of complex and ambitious goals.
    The book is an example of how innovation occurs and can spread its influence widely for national benefit.
