Organised in an easy-to-look-up A to Z format, from albatrosses to ants, from kiwi to kea, from lakes to lizards, from weta to whales, this comprehensive encyclopaedia covers every aspect of New Zealand's magnificent natural history. An introductory section explains how New Zealand's unique natural world evolved through history and describes our major wildlife habitats. Feature pages provide additional information about people, the weather and physical features such as islands, mountains and rivers. The 400 pages are illustrated by hundreds of photographs from New Zealand's leading nature photographers as well as stunning artwork by the country's top natural history illustrators. In 1999 The Natural World of New Zealand won the environment category of the Montana Book Awards, the non-fiction section of the NZ Post Children's book awards, and overall best book design of the Spectrum Print Book Design Awards.
