Checklist of the Birds of New Zealand
A substantially revised and updated official list of all the birds in the New Zealand region, including Norfolk and Macquarie Islands and the Ross Dependency, Antarctica. An up to date distributional status of the birds is of particular interest to those with an interest in environmental conservation.
First published in 1953 this guide is now in its fourth edition and is substantially revised and expanded. More than fifty species have been added and the taxonomic sequence advocate is different, reflecting advances in the understanding of avian evolution over the last 20 years.
