The Subantarctic Islands: Past, Present and Future
- Department of Zoology, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand
Contributors to this symposium have outlined the present status of our scientific knowledge of what is one of the most fascinating regions on this globe, the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand. No completely satisfactory definition of this region exists. It may be defined as those islands which lie within the Subantarctic zone of surface waters, bounded to the north by the Subtropical Convergence zone and to the south by the Subantarctic Convergence (Knox 1960).
