Hi all, I recently arrived in New Zealand and plan to be here for a year. I’ve come here to learn about its unique flora and teach myself more about botany.
Doing something stupid like this means I don’t know anyone and there is a steep learning curve in IDing plants, finding spots to botanize, developing an understanding of the geological record, ecology, and general biogeography of the country.
I’m moving from the north to the south at this point.
If you live in New Zealand and are interested in going for a walk some time to share some wisdom, let’s meet up. Or, if there are any species or any spots I have to see, or anyone you know that I should get in touch with, let me know. Thanks!
