Abstract

Of all the sub-Antarctic islands, the Snares are the ‘least modified’ by man through the introduction of non-native species of plants and animals. The earliest botanical survey of the islands, by well-known New Zealand botanist Thomas Kirk, dates back to the early 1890s. This paper, by University of Canterbury botanist Professor Brian Fineran, is based on research carried out in the Snares in 1961. Researchers studied not only the zoology and botany but also the geology, geography and meteorology of the region. The Snares are now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
