A comprehensive collection, this trilogy contains the official list of all approximately 56,120 living and 14,700 fossil species of New Zealand's animal, plant, fungi, and microorganism populations. Featuring photographs and illustrations, it demonstrates the value and benefits of taxonomic research in New Zealand and its applications to science, biotechnology, conservation, and biosecurity. The project is the first of its kind, as no other country has compiled a checklist of its entire biota.
