Abstract

The University of Canterbury Snares Islands Expeditions (from 1961) - These reports are a collection of publications (from 1961 to 1984) which expound the University of Canterbury’s expeditions to the Snares Islands, a small archipelago located south of Stewart Island. The University of Canterbury set up a Biological Station on the main island called North East Island in 1961 for the observation and study of the flora, fauna, geology and climate in and around the Snares Islands group. The island group is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
