Penguins of New Zealand
In 2009, LSD launched Penguins of New Zealand (with photographs by Rod Morris). As the publisher, New Holland, says on it’s website: “New Zealand and its territories are home to a greater number of penguin species than any other region on the planet...Lloyd Spencer Davis, one of the country’s top researchers into penguin biology and behaviour, has written an informative and accessible guide to 12 species, covering all key aspects from their evolution and prehistory to their feeding and breeding behaviour and current conservation issues.”
Review...contains a wealth of material about these fascinating birds presented in a clear and interesting style...The text is written so that it would appeal to young readers as well as adults.
