Wetland Plants in New Zealand

Peter Johnson, drawings by Pat Brooke

A facsimile reprint of Johnson and Brooke’s classic work on the important and diverse wetland plant species of New Zealand.

Designed as a field guide Wetland Plants in New Zealand illustrates both native and naturalised plants of bogs, swamps, estuaries, and lakes, and covers the New Zealand botanical region, i.e., the three main Islands, the Kermadecs, the Three Kings, the Chathams, and the subantarctic islands including Macquarie. It covers ferns and their allies, conifers, stoneworts, and flowering plants. Mosses, liverworts, and lichens are not treated in this work. Superb line drawings complement the text which describes key features, distributions, and habitats.

Note: The original 1989 edition was reissued with amendment in 1998 as a spiral-bound facsimile reprint, including a new three-page section (plus references) of corrections and plant name changes. The 1998 version was re-issued in 2007, and is now reproduced in 2009 with a new cover and with the benefit of improved technology, and perfect binding.
