About this book

This book builds on the information gathered in a five year survey of Banks Peninsula to present a concise and up-to-date summary of the area's landscape, vegetation and wildlife. The Peninsula is a unique volcanic landform jutting eastwards into the Pacific from the otherwise unsurprising Canterbury Plains. It was stripped of trees by two waves of human colonisation, but native forest cover is now increasing.
