About this title


"A landmark work, a book that paleontologists, ornithologists, biogeographers, and ecologists alike will use as a resource for some time to come." James O. Farlow

THE LOST WORLD OF THE MOA investigates one of the richest and most unusual faunas in the world, one that thrived in isolation for 80 million years, but that over the past 2000 years has been reduced to a shadow of its former glory. It was a fauna dominated by birds. In one of the most dramatic extinctions of modern times, half of these species were removed from the planet forever.

About the Author:

Trevor H. Worthy is a Research Associate at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Birds Dept) and a research scientist privately contracted to the government. He has published extensively with emphases on taxonomy (variously addressing moa, other birds, frogs, lizards, and bats) and palaeofaunal reconstruction.
