New Caledonia, flora, Mike Wilcox & Graeme Platt, 2002 PDF

The IDS Araucariaceae symposium, held in Auckland, New Zealand, 14-17 March 2002, and the pre-symposium tour of Northland is described above by Timothy Waters. Here we give an account of the post-symposium tour to New Caledonia, which ran from 19-30 March 2002.

The objective of the visit to New Caledonia was to see as many as possible of the five local species of Agathis and thirteen of Araucaria, both in natural stands and in cultivation, and to gain an appreciation of the other unique conifers and plants of the country.
