This book brings together an overview of the recent geological history, active earth and biological processes and human settlement of New Zealand. Topics covered include the very active neotectonic and volcanic setting. Mountain geomorphic processes are examined and new ideas about landsliding are highlighted. The exceptional sedimentary archives of the Whanganui Basin are also presented. As one of two land masses that extend into the southern mid-latitudes, New Zealand is ideally located to investigate changes in Southern Ocean climate. Related to this, mountain glaciation in New Zealand is a focus in global climate change debates. New Zealand also has a unique biota due to its long isolation and is the last major land mass to be settled by people. Advances in DNA technologies have revolutionised our understanding of the histories and processes involved. The book provides a comprehensive review of existing work and highlights new ideas and major debates across all these fields.

The Modern Landscapes Of Ted Smyth

The modern period in landscape architecture is enjoying the fascinated appreciation of scholars and historians in Europe and the Americas, and new themes, new subjects and new appraisals are appearing. This book contributes to the conversation by focusing on the work of a singular designer who spent his entire career in a province of the North Island of New Zealand. Ted Smyth practiced an assured landscape modernism without ever seeing the designs of his forebears or his contemporaries working in the UK, Europe and the United States. Designing in isolation from the mainstream of modernism, and a little after its high tide, Smyth produced a series of gardens that provoke a revaluation of the diffusionist model of influence. The book explains and describes the evolution of Smyth’s design vocabulary and relates it to the development of tropical landscape modernism in other Asia-Pacific sites. It shows how a culture of garden modernism can be generated from within a particular locale, and highlights Smyth’s engagement with Māori design traditions in search of a specific expression of the high modern essentialism of place.

Globalisation And Agricultural Landscapes

Whilst agricultural landscapes are products of the local ecosystem and community in which they are situated, they are becoming increasingly affected by the same global issues, and are converging under the dynamics of globalisation. Combining landscape ecological research and an examination of relevant public policy, this book investigates the dynamic relationship between agricultural landscapes and the global change processes, such as urbanisation, by which they are being transformed. Landscape change is analysed in the context of biophysical patterns, market dynamics, and specific public policy frameworks, through a series of case studies from different OECD countries spanning Europe, Asia Pacific and North America. Particular emphasis is placed upon the way that landscapes are changing under differing policies of agricultural subsidy including the EU Common Agricultural Policy. This is an ideal resource for graduate students and researchers in landscape ecology and agriculture as well as policy analysts working in the agricultural sector.

Photographer and writer Rob Brown has been tramping in some of the most remote areas of New Zealand for over two decades. An essential addition to his pack on these trips is his full range of camera gear, which has enabled him to capture the immensely detailed and beautifully lit photographs that so distinguish his work. In the process he has photographed a breathtaking range of New Zealand's most beautiful and spectacular places, returning time and time again until he has produced an image that captures the essence of these landscapes that so inspire him. In this revised edition of New Zealand: The essential landscape, Rob presents a roll call of what can truly be claimed as the essential landscapes of Aotearoa, from Stewart Island, Fiordland and the glacier country of South Westland, to the volcanoes, coastal scenery and kauri forests of the North Island. A committed conservationist, Rob's belief in the ability of the natural world to enrich the human spirit shines out through his photographs. He is clearly one of the finest landscape photographers working in this country, and New Zealand: The essential landscape is a superb insight into the elegance and strength of his work.

This is a traveller's guide to the historical sites of the New Zealand Wars. With clear helpful directions, it pinpoints all the major battle sites and provides a vivid commentary on the drama that enfolded at each site. Richly illustrated with black and white photographs, maps, and a 32-page colour insert with photographs and historical paintings. The New Zealand Wars (commonly termed The Maori Wars) of the 19th century were a major event in New Zealand's colonial history and their political reverberations are felt to this day. This book is a unique field guide to the other legacy of the Wars: dozens of battlegrounds, Maori and Pakeha fortifications and other historical sites that tell a tale of conflict and heroism. You can relive the British assault on Ohaewai; discover Te Kooti's and Tikowaru's mighty redoubts; visit the sites of British stockades; and visit the cemeteries commemorating the men and women who lost their lives. Each historical campaign is described vividly, and the 'places to visit' text and road maps make it easy to identify battle sites and points of interest. Nigel Prickett, born in Christchurch, brought up on a farm in the Wairarapa. He has a degree in history from Victoria University, Wellington, and a Ph.D. in archaeology from Auckland University. Since 1979 he has been Curator of Archaeology at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. Over many years he has carried out fieldwork throughout the North Island to extend his knowledge of the history and sites of the New Zealand Wars. He has wide interests in New Zealand archaeology and has excavated Maori and early European sites. EARLY MAORI ORNAMENTS and MAORI ORIGINS are among his recent publications.
