              New Zealand's best-known bird and national icon is the subject of this new and highly accessible title from two experts in their field. There are five recognised species of kiwi, distributed unevenly in locations throughout New Zealand and ranging from the most widespread - the N...orth Island brown kiwi - to the most endangered (the little spotted kiwi). Along with stunning photographs from award-winning wildlife photographer Rod Morris, native bird expert Dr Isabel Castrol describes all key aspects of kiwi, from their evolution, prehistory and closest relatives (based on the latest research) to their feeding and breeding behaviour and current conservation issues, making this the perfect introduction for anyone with an interest in these fascinating birds. The series Kiwi is the second title in a new A5-sized full-colour series from New Holland on New Zealand's wildlife, targeted at a family readership. The first title is Penguins of New Zealand by Lloyd Spencer Davis and Rod Morris.

              "Our isolation has been a huge advantage. It turned New Zealand into a wild laboratory where evolution could conduct experiments that lead to weird and wonderful outcomes like the kakpo and the giant weta. More recently, scientists are discovering how little we know about the spe...cies we thought we knew so well. The authors bring you up to date with these discoveries and give you a snapshot of what is so special about New Zealand wildlife"--Publisher information.

              This is the first comprehensive reference on New Zealand freshwater fishes since the publication of Bob McDowell's field guide (Heinemann Reed) over 12 years ago. It includes all freshwater fishes, both introduced and native fishes, with useful identification charts at the back o...f the book for bullies and whitebait (diadromous galaxids). Rod Morris has gone to great lengths to capture the very best images and numerous colour photographs through the book will assist in identifying the male and female of the species, and the subtle differences between related fishes. An extensive introduction includes highly topical coverage of freshwater ecology and conservation issues surrounding the quality of New Zealand's waterways, making this book an invaluable information resource. In addition, keen anglers will be delighted to find full entries on trout, salmon, and rudd, including rare hybrids. And mini-maps provided for each entry give an indication of the distribution of each species throughout the country.
