Exotic Intruders. The Introduction of Plants and Animals into New Zealand. Joan Druett. With a preface by Ronald M Lockley. 1983 1st edition. Heinemann, Auckland


The early European settlers brought many species of plants and animals from their homelands.
This book examines why they brought each, who brought them and how

Maori brought with them kiore (rats) and kuri (dogs) plus edible plants
Captain Cook brought goats, pigs and plants
From there it was open slather ... the horse arrived to help open up the country and, especially once the settlers arrived, plants and animals were introduced at an amazing rate

The book also examines the impact each import has had on the existing native flora and fauna and covers a great variety of plants, birds and animals, some of which have become serious pests whilst others failed to thrive
