New Zealand’s indigenous forests are complex and unique, and occupy million ha (or 24 percent) of New Zealand’s total land area of 27 million ha. There are 1 million ha of privately owned indigenous forests, and the rest, over 80 percent of our indigenous forest, is either in the Conservation estate, under covenant or held in other land. As in many other countries, indigenous forests on private land in New Zealand have long been vulnerable to commercial logging and clearance for agriculture and exotic forestry. The s are a potential watershed in achieving sustainable management of this by: 8.

Pre-human forest cover. Since New Zealand was the last major landmass to be settled by humans, anthropological changes are easier to study than in countries with a longer human history. A picture of the vegetation cover has been built up through the use of archeological and fossil remains, especially pollen grains from old forests are found on Stewart Island and Ulva Island, but.
New Zealand has thirteen national parks, thirty one marine reserves and many other protected areas for the conservation of introduction of many invasive species is threatening the indigenous biodiversity, since the geographical isolation of New Zealand led to the evolution of plants and animals that did not have traits to protect against predation. New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS) The New Zealand Threat Classification System is used to assess the threat status of our taxa (species, subspecies, varieties and forma). Report sick, injured or dead wildlife. What to do if you find a dead bird, beached whale, or other native animals that might need help. Species programmes.

New Zealand Journal of Forestry, 43, 19–Author: C. King, A. Beveridge, M. Smale. This is the third compilation of annotated bibliographic information on the ecology and management of indigenous forest of the central North Island Volcanic Plateau, following publications on the Pureora Forest Park and Whirinaki Conservation Park.
New Zealand’s indigenous forests and shrublands currently cover c. 23% and 10% of New Zealand’s million-hectare land surface respectively (Thompson et al.
Among plantation forests, the most healthy forests are those of exotic species growing a long way from their native range (e.g., Pinus radiata D. Don in New Zealand) and the least healthy ones are.

Ridley, J. Bain, L.S. Bulman, M.A. Dick, and M.K. Kay Published by Department of Conservation P.O. Box Wellington, New Zealand. The New Zealand Land Use and Carbon Analysis System (LUCAS) was designed to estimate changes in carbon storage in indigenous forests and shrublands as part of New Zealand's reporting commitment.

Today’s forest remnants are confined largely to areas of conservation land, but legislation can’t protect against pathogens, pests and invasive weeds that do not respect park boundaries.
Forests are rich abundant habitats full of trees and shrubs and all kinds of animals. Before people arrived in New Zealand, 80% of the land was covered in dense forest. Now only 24% of land is native forest, or just under million hectares.
Two of the main types of native forest in New Zealand. Continuous Cover Forestry: A Handbook for the Management of New Zealand Forests by Ian Barton Review by Allan Levett, November This is a timely book. Continuous cover forestry is suited to slower growing high value species.
SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF INDIGENOUS FORESTS IN NEW ZEALAND million ha of indigenous forest in New Zealand, approximately 1 million hectares is privately owned and potentially available for management for timber production .
The Department of Conservation holds more than 4,9 million hectares of natural forest in National parks. Through the Department of Conservation, it manages about million hectares of New Zealand's tall indigenous forests for the conservation of biodiversity, heritage, and recreation.
Most of this Crown-owned forest is protected in national parks, scenic reserves, and other conservation areas.
Sustainable forest management is increasingly important to ensure the long-term future of New Zealand's forests and to meet a growing market demand for sustainably produced timber. New Zealand monitors the sustainability of our forest management through an international system called the Montréal Process.
Conservation and management of New Zealand's indigenous forests: a selected bibliography, Find out how MPI helps owners of indigenous forest manage and conserve their forests and what options are available for owners who don't want to manage their forests for timber.
Conservation matters Around 80% of New Zealand's trees, bushes and flowers are endemic (found nowhere else in the world) and around 50% of our total land area is. This paper analyses the turning-point in attitudes to the most distinctive feature of one nation's indigenous environment.

Methods Information on New Zealand and international faunal biodiversity within. New Zealand’s indigenous land birds are most commonly found in forest or shrub land. In some areas exotic forests provide important habitat for indigenous birds.
The availability of good quality indigenous forest (including exclusion of predators) is important to the survival of many of the uncommon and threatened bird species. OCLC Number: Notes: Cover title: Te whaonui o tane = indigenous forests of New Zealand.
