Journal History

The Fauna of New Zealand / Ko te Aitanga Pepeke o Aotearoa series has been widely acclaimed for its role in presenting New Zealand's unique terrestrial invertebrate fauna to the world since 1982.

The Fauna of New Zealand is a monograph series with approximately two new issues a year. Each number contains a checklist of the taxa, an introduction to the group, descriptions of the taxa, and illustrations (line and half-tone, and in recent years colour images). It was the first scientific series in New Zealand to have popular summaries in Māori and English.
