This 2020 volume includes articles on the Pitcairn stone tool collection, Māori archaeological textiles, John Buchanan’s pre-1880 records and illustrations of New Zealand fungi, the flora and vegetation of the northern Kermadec Island group, the naturalised flora of Niue, moa fauna, and fossil and Recent molluscan types.
Records of the Auckland Museum (formerly Records of the Auckland Institute and Museum) is our main academic journal. Its 450+ articles incorporate the results of original research on our extensive collections, as well as research by Museum staff and other subject-matter experts. The journal has been published more or less annually since 1930, and includes contributions from more than 150 authors and co-authors dealing mostly with zoology, archaeology, ethnology, and botany.
The articles contain important accounts of archaeological excavations and ethnographic objects, and descriptions of nearly 700 new taxa (mostly new animal species and subspecies)—a major contribution to the documentation of New Zealand's biodiversity.
