The Waters of the Waikato - Ecology of New Zealand’s longest river

Kevin Collier, David Hamilton, Bill Vant and Clive Howard-Williams (editors).

The Waters of the Waikato: Ecology of New Zealand’s Longest River is a case
study of an iconic New Zealand river. It is of great cultural and spiritual
significance, has considerable economic and recreational value, and provides
a place to live for a wide variety of plants and animals. This book tells a story
of this river’s physical and chemical environment and the life it supports,
from the turbulent blue waters at the outlet of New Zealand’s largest lake
down to the tidal waters of the river delta. It is a contemporary synthesis
of current scientific knowledge of the river, and will provide a reference for
river managers, policy makers, students and the interested public.
Price: $49 plus GST with free postage in NZ and $10 for overseas.
