Two titles continue this well-known series: A Photographic Guide to Trees of New Zealand, written and photographed by Lawrie Metcalf, and A Photographic Guide to Birds of New Zealand, written and photographed by Geoff Moon. In A Photographic Guide to Trees of New Zealand, fact-filled descriptions highlighting key identification features of New Zealand trees are supported by distribution maps and one or more full colour photographs of each of over 100 species. Compact and easy to use, these new books are ideal for anyone with an active interest in natural history.
