Hardcover, ISBN 0868633976
Publisher: Auckland: Heinemann, 1983, Auckland, 1983 VG+/VG+. 1st. 27cm deep by 19cm.

This excellent study of the introduction of plants, animals, fish and insects to NZ is a story of success and of folly. While many introduced species were to play a vital role in the development of the country, others caused utter havoc with the native species and the environment. Among the former are the sheep, cattle and horses that formed the economic base and transport for the country. A lovely copy, clean and tight without inscriptions
