Although the Edendale district of Southland has a large area of high class soils, up until now the detailed soil distribution has never been mapped. Recently, an increase in dairy farming in the district, legislative change regarding effluent disposal, and opportunities for horticultural diversification have created a requirement for better knowledge of the soils in the area.



This booklet and map are the results of a new survey completed in 1994. They provide more information on soil permeability, drainage, and moisture storage, to enable analysis of potential contaminant problems, and to assist sustainable management of the land in the district.



Detailed information on soil profiles mentioned in the text is provided in an Appendix, along with a 1:50,000 colour soil map of the area, detailing roads and waterways.

An outline of the vegetation pattern and substrate classes follows. These are then described in detail, with photographic illustration of most of them. Features of the flora are discussed and the final section attempts to place the park in a regional context and gives some suggestions for future management.



A full colour, 1:40 000 scale map NZMS 169, is included in the back of the book.

It records 234 moss species — nearly half the moss flora of New Zealand — known to be growing on the Banks Peninsula, and includes those which have been noted in the early literature from the Peninsula area.



Discussion of physical features, climate, and vegetation of the Peninsula is provided. Herbarium voucher numbers are given, and reference is made to the earliest published record for each species. A comprehensive bibliography and an index of family and Latin names are included.

Included are descriptions of the soil, extensive information on the soil chemical and physical properties, and valuable details of land use.
