About this book

This substantially revised and expanded edition of the Checklist of the Birds of New Zealand is the official list of all the birds in the New Zealand region, including Norfolk and Macquarie Islands, and the Ross Dependency, Antarctica.

Published in association with the Ornithological Society of New Zealand, this comprehensive guide was compiled by the society's Checklist Committee. It provides details of the nomenclature, taxonomy, classification, status and distribution (current, historical and fossil) of every living and extinct species of New Zealand bird and, for the first time, includes complete synonymies. More than fifty species have been added, along with thorough bibliographic references, a list of Maori bird names, a full index and updated maps.
