About the Edition

The forests of the Mamaku (or Patetere) Plateau, North Island, New Zealand, have a history of numerous land uses, and now exist as key enclaves for indigenous biota within the Bay of Plenty. Conservation focus is moving from single-species protection to a more comprehensive management approach, targeting multiple pests at key sites. This annotated bibliography covers a timeframe from the late 19th century onwards. It includes research and survey work on the forests, flora and fauna, with some information on soils, geology, and hydrology. It also covers the history of logging and conversion of logged indigenous forest to pine plantations on land leased to forestry companies. Podocarp restoration trials following cutover operations are outlined. This is the third compilation of annotated bibliographic information on the ecology and management of indigenous forest of the central North Island Volcanic Plateau, following publications on the Pureora Forest Park and Whirinaki Conservation Park. The bibliography is an ongoing project and its authors welcome updates, corrections, or details of relevant articles.
