Professor Salmon has taken the essential features of his highly acclaimed book The Native Trees of New Zealand and compiled this outstanding field guide for nature-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Whilst preserving the high scientific standards of Professor Salmon's Native Trees the book has been carefully designed to be used in the field as an identification guide. The Reed Field Guide to New Zealand Native Trees is a complete and easy-to-read reference to the trees of New Zealand's three main islands. Native trees from outlying islands and tree ferns are not included.
About the Author
John Salmon's life-long love for New Zealand's wilderness places gave him a deep understanding of the implications of environmental conservation. As Professor of Zoology and later Dean of the Science Faculty at Victoria University, his views on the importance of conservation and ecology proved an inspiration to many of his students. When John Salmon died he left a legacy matched by few other New Zealanders. From his first books, published in the early 1960s, to his ground-breaking The Native Trees of New Zealand, John Salmon has been a staunch defender of our natural heritage. He was assisted by his wife Pam in the completion of the two volumes of Exotic Trees.
