The volumes comprehensively review “all of life through all of time” in Aotearoa New Zealand including fossil biota. Each chapter covers a particular phylum of life, with additional separate chapters on lichens, ichnofossils, plant microfossils and plant macrofossils, reviewing what is known about these organisms in New Zealand – their biology, special features, ecological associations and economic importance, followed by a checklist of all living and fossil species in a particular phylum.
The volumes cover organisms from all environments and also include naturalised-aliens and species of medical importance.
