Management of New Zealand's environment needs to be based on sound knowledge.
Natural resource managers and policy makers now have at their fingertips the first comprehensive assessment of the state of ecosystem services - the benefits people obtain from nature - in this country.
More than 100 of New Zealand's leading scientists and academics have penned the 36 chapter for the new 540-page book.
Ecosystem services are categorised as 'provisioning', such as food, timber and freshwater; 'regulating', such as air quality, climate and pest regulation; 'cultural' such as recreation and sense of belonging; and 'supporting', such as soil quality and natural habitat resistance to weeds.
Editor John Dymond says the book was produced to improve understanding of the functioning of New Zealand's ecosystems.

Derived from a reconnaissance vegetation survey of the park, which formed the major part of a 1981 thesis.



Introductory sections contain brief descriptions of the physical environment and the effects of introduced browsing mammals and human activities.



The main previous contributions to the botanical knowledge of the park are summarised.



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.

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.
