Information
NZ Wild Life is an engrossing and illuminating exploration of the everyday biology of New Zealand. Interweaving the miniature with the majestic, ancient history with modern evidence, biologists Steve Trewick and Mary Morgan-Richards tell an enchanting story of New Zealand's ever-changing natural landscape.

The evolution of New Zealand's wildlife is a dynamic interplay between isolation and colonisation, between species formation and extinction. Our natural history offers a rich and fascinating window to the way biological diversity develops, a curious story that includes:

- takahe
- weka
- parrots and parakeets
- bats
- glowworms
- weta
- ngarara and tuatara
- freshwater crayfish
- stick insects
- ferns and fungi
- rata and pohutukawa
- rimu and totara
- flaxes
. . . and more

An accessible, informative and well-illustrated guide to the 'wild' wonderland that is outdoors New Zealand – suitable for novices and knowledgeable readers alike.
