|Synopsis||This much anticipated revised and expanded edition describes the Chatham Islands, with particular emphasis on their geology, flora, fauna, habitats, and extinct and endangered species - both on the land and in the sea. It gives an introduction to the history of the islands and a guide to the many reserves and covenants that have been set up to protect and conserve the islands' heritage.
Profusely illustrated with an outstanding selection of colour photos, artwork and maps, as well as historical photographs.

He was co-author of Endemic plants of the Chatham Islands and Birds of the Chatham Islands.
