This layer provides a classification of New Zealand ecosystems according to fern composition. Generalized Dissimilarity Modelling was used to produce a model of biotic composition in relation ship to environment and biogeography. This model was used to transform and scale environmental layers to predict community composition. The transformed environmental layers were then used to classify New Zealand into areas of similar biotic composition. The biotic data used for this model include all fern taxa from NVS recce data and estimated community compositions from pollen data.

This layer provides a classification of New Zealand ecosystems according to plant composition. Generalized Dissimilarity Modelling was used to produce a model of biotic composition in relation ship to environment and biogeography. This model was used to transform and scale environmental layers to predict community composition. The transformed environmental layers were then used to classify New Zealand into areas of similar biotic composition. The biotic data used for this model include all vascular plant taxa from NVS recce data and estimated community compositions from pollen data.

NZ Area Codes for recording specimen localities

This dataset was last updated on LRIS Portal on 22 Oct 2010.

Crosby et al. (1976) subdivided the New Zealand mainland (North, South, and Stewart Islands, plus nearby inshore islands) into 29 approximately equalsized areas, and defined two-letter codes for each. The codes and boundary definitions for these areas were provided on a separate, large map enclosed with the journal issue. These areas were modified from the areas used as weather forecast districts by the New Zealand Meteorological Service, and their main purpose was to facilitate the arrangement, retrieval, and documentation of specimens in the New Zealand Arthropod Collection (NZAC). The codes have subsequently been used in other collections, for computer databases, and in publications as a convenient way of categorising specimen data.
