GHOSTS OF GONDWANA:

THE HISTORY OF LIFE IN NEW ZEALAND


By George Gibbs

(Second hand copy in mint condition)

  

This award-winning and beautifully produced book explains why New Zealand’s plants and animals are so different from those in other countries. Why the kakapo is the only parrot in the world that cannot fly, or why the kiwi lives here and nowhere else.

  

New Zealand is an extraordinary place, unique on Earth, and this book tells the story of how and why life evolved here through geological time.

  

Exciting fossil discoveries are revealed and new scientific technologies and approaches to the discipline of historical biogeography are discussed – approaches that range from undersea geology to molecular clocks.

  

Published by Craig Potton Publishing. 2006. Colour photographs throughout. Hardback with dust jacket. 232 pages. 'As new' condition.
