New Zealand's best-known bird is the subject of this new title from Dr Isabel Castro and Rod. This is the perfect introduction for anyone with an interest in these fascinating birds. All five kiwi are covered ranging from the widespread North Island brown kiwi, to the endangered little spotted kiwi. Isabel describes key aspects of kiwi, from their evolution, prehistory and closest relatives (based on the latest research) to their feeding and breeding behaviour.
Featuring over 100 full-colour photographs by Rod.
Dr Isabel Castro lectures in Ecology at Massey University, where she leads research programmes on North Island brown kiwi behaviour, biology and ecological relationships. She has also carried out in-depth research on the hihi or stitchbird, as well as other native birds.
This is the second title in a series from New Holland on New Zealand's wildlife, targeted at a family readership. The first title was Penguins of New Zealand by Lloyd Spencer Davis and Rod.
