This excellent study of the introduction of plants, animals, fish and insects to NZ is a story of success and of folly. While many introduced species were to play a vital role in the development of the country, others caused utter havoc with the native species and the environment. Among the former are the sheep, cattle and horses that formed the economic base and transport for the country. Others --- including rabbits, stoats, weasles, possums, deer became pests with serious impacts on native wildlife and vegetation. In 14 well reserched and presented chapters the author follows the fortunes and misfortunes of these arrivals. In latter years other exotic species have been introduced, with varying degrees of success, but under much tighter controls to avoid the disasters of the past. 291 pages including bibliography, index, B/w photos, art. sketches throughout. green hard covers with white spine titles VG with light wear lower edges, text block NF. Colour art wrap-round DJ excellent with few minute chips. Seller Inventory # 001810
