Sea Fishes of New Zealand:
The fishes of New Zealand are part of the Indo-Pacific fish fauna, by far the richest in the world. This guide covers many bony (or teleostean) reef fishes belonging to the super class PISCES, class OSTEICHTHYES, and discusses their habits by day and night, their modes of life, diet and relation to their surroundings. Each fish is illustrated with at least one full colour photograph. There is also an authoritative section on fish design, as well as classification.
Wildflowers of New Zealand:
The sixth New Zealand title in this internationally acclaimed series of compact, easy-to-use guides which is the ideal car glovebox, pocket or backpack reference for all amateur botanists as well as anyone with an interest in natural history. A Photographic Guide To Wildflowers of New Zealand covers 125 common species one is most likely to encounter growing wild in accessible parts of New Zealand. Some common native species are included alongside introduced species. Each wildflower is treated with colour photographs, descriptive information, habitat notes and distribution patterns. A comprehensive introduction gives an overview of the species and their distribution and identification.
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.
Trees of New Zealand:

Compact and easy to use, these new books are ideal for anyone with an active interest in natural history.
