About Manaaki Whenua Press

Manaaki Whenua Press started business in 1993, as part of the New Zealand Crown Research Institute Landcare Research.

Many of our books and other publications are developed from research by the staff of Landcare Research, and titles include the standard reference works on flora, fauna and fungi in New Zealand.

While we continue to publish new titles, the retail and distribution functions of Manaaki Whenua Press ceased on 31st October 2013.

This site promotes and provides access to our science publications, either via alternative book distributors, downloadable PDFs, or other online sources.
