This is an auction for A NATURALIST IN NEW ZEALAND by Mary Gillham.

"During a year as an exchange lecturer at Massey University, Mary Gillham travelled to many out of the way New Zealand places, investigating the flora and fauna. This is her account of those travels."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dr Mary Eleanor Gillham MBE (1921-2013) was an English naturalist, university lecturer, and writer. As a post-war student in the University of Wales at Aberystwyth and Bangor, she gained a degree in agriculture, a first-class honours in botany, and a doctorate in island ecology. She lectured in the universities of Exeter (Devon), Massey (New Zealand), Melbourne (Australia), Kano (Nigeria), and worked in the Adult Education Department at University College Cardiff from 1961 until her retirement in 1988. As a teacher of adult amateur naturalists, she saw her role as an interpreter of scientific data for the layman, and took to writing books and popular articles. Spray-washed seabird colonies were her main love, and research on these took her to remote islands in many parts of the world, where she has lived in tents, huts, lighthouses, etc. Her major research projects were around the coasts of West Wales, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, and she was one of the first women to join an Antarctic expedition (in 1959/60). In 1970, she undertook a research project on Aldabra in the Indian Ocean, and subsequently took naturalists to the Seychelles.
