The Collins Pocket Guide to New Zealand Minibeasts is a guide to over 120 species of ‘minibeasts’, from earthworms and leeches to springtails and sand scarabs. A practical and portable reference guide, it provides the basic information necessary to identify the most commonly encountered minibeasts in New Zealand. Concise, authoritative and accessible text, clear distribution maps and superb colour photographs describe what a minibeast looks like, where it lives, what it is called and what it does. Written by leading natural history writer Terence Lindsey, and featuring magnificent photographs taken largely by celebrated wildlife photographer Rod Morris, The Collins Pocket Guide to New Zealand Minibeasts is the perfect guide for travellers, tourists and students of New Zealand wildlife.
Terence Lindsey has written a wide range of books, articles and encyclopedia entries for leading natural history publishers around the world, as well as directed and scripted a number of wildlife documentaries for television.
Rod Morris' wildlife photography has featured internationally in magazines, books and films to wide acclaim. He was a wildlife film maker for 25 years and now divides his time between photographing wildlife in some of the world’s most exotic locations and running his wildlife picture agency.
