  • Natural History of Banks Peninsula
    Natural History of Banks Peninsula
    Banks Peninsula, treasured by Christchurch city dwellers, peninsula residents and visitors from afar, is a unique volcanic landform jutting eastwards into the Pacific from the otherwise unsurprising Canterbury Plains. Once forested from side to side, and from sea to summits, the land was stripped of nearly all its trees, and much of its original wildlife, by two great waves of colonisation, Polynesian and European. Much indigenous biodiversity remains, however, and native forest cover is increasing. This book traces what happened, and presents a concise and up-to-date summary of today's landscape, vegetation and wildlife. The text is accompanied by stunning photographs and charming drawings, as well as by figures, tables and full checklists of species. Natural History of Banks Peninsula, now in this revised edition, is essential reading for locals and visitors alike. For the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, which sponsored its publication, the book is part of a mission to disseminate information and foster the protection and restoration of the region's special natural values.

  • Nature and Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand
    Nature and Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand
    We have never been more aware of the benefit of being out in nature, but how much quality time does the 'average' New Zealander spend enjoying the outdoors? While our national parks are places of spectacular wilderness, for many of us, these places are out of reach. This ground-breaking book argues for the restoration of 'neighbourhood nature' - places that all New Zealanders can freely access, irrespective of socioeconomic or other factors. New Zealand's experience of the coronavirus pandemic underscores how important these local oases of nature are - and how vital they are to our wellbeing. Richly illustrated throughout, this book tells the stories of a wide range of New Zealanders, who - either individually or through organised initiatives - have experienced the wellbeing benefits gained through connection with nature. Their stories are varied but each one is authentic, personal and moving. Drawing on the latest scientific research and through these personal stories, Knight challenges us to contemplate a more nature-rich future.

  • New Zealand Alpine Flora
    New Zealand Alpine Flora
    The alpine zone is usually defined as the area on a mountain between the upper limit of tree growth, the treeline, and where permanent snow begins. New Zealand’s alpine land includes parts of the Southern Alps in the South Island, and the central North Island. All of the images in this book were taken in the South Island, mostly between 1300-1600mts.
    Some of New Zealand’s alpine flora are small and elusive, making them difficult to find. It takes time and commitment, searching the mountains in difficult terrain and all weather conditions, hoping to find a plant in perfect condition to photograph. Not all alpine plants flower every year, one never knows what each season will reveal until you venture out to look.

    Rebecca Bowater grew up with a love of nature fostered by her parents – her father a botanist and her mother a horticulturist.
    Through her passion for New Zealand alpine flowers, fungi and birds, Rebecca has received many awards, book credits and achieved Fellowship with the Photographic Society of New Zealand, for whom she is an accredited nature judge. She has also gained her letters AFIAP – ‘The International Federation of Photographic Art’.
    Her great love for all nature has prompted travels to many of the world’s national parks.
