Introduction

Explore some findings from DOC’s Monitoring and Reporting System on New Zealand's biodiversity and the introduced animals and plants that threaten it.

Highlights

These factsheets are complementary technical information to the Annual Report 2015-16. The factsheet numbers match the references used in the annual report.
