    We used recent satellite imagery to quantify the extent, type, and rate of conversion of remaining indigenous grasslands in the inland eastern South Island of New Zealand in recent years.   Description of New Zealand's indigenous forests. New Zealand's remaining indigenous forests cover approximately million ha or 23% of the land surface area (Wardle et al., ). More than half these forests are dominated by one or more species of southern beech (Nothofagus; plant names follow the Allan Herbarium, –).

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.

      The New Zealand government established a forum to hear treaty-based grievances, known as the Waitangi Tribunal, in The current framework for settling historical grievances focuses on the restitution of Article II rights: the taking of resources including land and the absence of protective measures regarding Māori culture. Wetland Restoration: A Handbook for New Zealand Freshwater Systems brings together expertise from specialists and groups actively engaged in restoring wetlands throughout the country. The handbook builds on regionally based restoration guides and provides a detailed, comprehensive ecosystem approach toward understanding, protecting and.

Remaining indigenous cover. Comparison of LCDB1 and LCDB2 indicates that 49% of Level IV land environments lost indigenous cover between /97 and / The highest rates of indigenous cover loss, and the greatest increases in susceptibility to biodiversity loss (i.e.

risk to remaining indigenous biodiversity), were in already threatened. New Zealand’s remaining indigenous cover 1. Introduction This work has four objectives, addressing the current status of New Zealand’s indigenous cover and change, and the consequences of the latter: • To explain the likely consequences for indigenous biodiversity of historical (prehuman to /02) changes in indigenous land cover.

Remaining indigenous cover not protected (INP) in all of New Zealand's environments, and in the five categories of threatened environments (INPTE) in /02, by indigenous cover class. It is important, yet hard, to assess how much of the full range of New Zealand’s terrestrial natural ecosystems and biodiversity remains, and is protected from loss.

Updated spatial datasets of land cover and protection allow a nation-wide consistent assessment of the loss and protection context of indigenous biodiversity components. Categories of New Zealand’s land environments in / a. number and % of environments, b. area and % of New Zealand, c.

area of remaining indigenous cover and % of New Zealand, d. area remaining indigenous cover not legally protected. New Zealand’s Indigenous population was disproportionately affected by the crisis, with Māori twice as likely to report they or a household member had lost a job, was unable to pay monthly.

New Zealand's response to the decline of indigenous biodiversity on land is managed through a comprehensive conservation and resource management framework. It involves national, regional and local government agencies, as well as iwi and hapu, numerous community and environmental groups, landowners and resource users.

The Māori (/ ˈ m aʊ r i /; Māori pronunciation: [ˈmaːɔɾi] ()) are the indigenous Polynesian people of mainland New Zealand.Māori originated with settlers from eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of waka (canoe) voyages between roughly and Over several centuries in isolation, these settlers developed their own distinctive culture, whose language.

Indigenous vegetation cover (which can be used as a proxy for indigenous biodiversity) is now less than 10% across most of New Zealands lowland zone (Figure 1)2. The spatial framework used for the analysis presented in Figure 1 is Land Environments of New Zealand (LENZ).

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. Environment threat categories based on % loss and % protection in May (Table 1) and B.

rate of recent loss (% loss of indigenous cover in the five year period /97 to /02), across. New Zealand has over 70 major river systems and numerous streams, with over four million kilometres of channel covering about square kilometres.

ranging from 63 percent in Southland to 99 percent in the Bay of Plenty. Of the remaining wetlands, many are degraded to varying extents by weed invasions, stock access, modifications to.

"New Zealand’s land area has been divided into land environments, each defined by their unique climate, topography, and soils. The extent to which indigenous vegetation is represented in these different land environments, and how that vegetation is formally protected, is described by ‘threatened environment’ categories.

A quarter of total indigenous grassland conversion from to took place in environments mapped as threatened; that is, with indigenous cover remaining (Weeks et al. b), and the. The Land Cover Database The New Zealand Land Cover Database (LCDB) is a multi-temporal, thematic, spatial classification of land cover that is presently in its fourth edition.

Land cover is recorded in the LCDB nominally for the New Zealand summers of /97, /02, /09 and /13, corresponding to versions 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively. 14 For example, changes in vegetation cover, composition and condition; marine fish stocks; and the breeding success and population levels of many threatened species.

15 "Natural habitats and ecosystems" refer to habitats and ecosystems with a dominant or significant indigenous natural character (see Glossary). 16 The index of indigenous biodiversity decline is based on what is known.

Today, the population of New Zealand is made up of people from a range of backgrounds; 70% are of European descent, % are indigenous Māori, % Asian and % non-Māori Pacific Islanders.

Geographically, over three-quarters of the population live in the North Island, with one-third of the total population living in Auckland.
