Adams, Nancy M: Seaweeds of New Zealand. 1994. Canterbury Univ Press, Christchurch New Zealand.This is a masterpiece, a lifetime work, detailing practically all seaweed species found in our country, complete with wonderful and clear paintings. For the paintings alone, this book would do well on any coffee table, but for its scientific value it will, for a long time, be the standard by which all other works will be measured. Thanks Nancy!
