Thirteen chapters, each authored or co-authored by specialists, describe a different area or science, including geology, landforms, fossils, climate, biogeography, environmental change since the last glaciation, the human factor, wetlands, the coast, and the open sea. The colour plates are of excellent quality and include maps, diagrams, and photographs, including satellite and aerial photographs. Contents: Geology; Landforms; Fossils and the History of Life; Climate; Biogeography; Environmental Change Since the Last Glaciation; The Human Factor; Forests and Shrublands; Tussock Grasslands and Associated Mountain Lands; Inland Waters and Wetlands; The Coast; The Open Sea; Nature Conservation in Southern New Zealand; Index.
