Why does some text display as boxes?
This site uses unicode fonts to display a number of symbols and special
characters. If this character "☿"
displays as a box you need to check (1) you have a unicode font installed on
your computer; and (2) that your brower has been set to display unicode fonts

icon at the start of each taxon description a new window will open up displaying
the information for that taxon in Ngā Tipu o Aotearoa - New Zealand Plants. This
provides access to the Names Database and Collections Data, and can be used to check

How to navigate through the books
The screen is broken into two sections; on the left hand side are the links to
the different sections of the book (in the order they appear in the book), and
on the right hand side are the individual sections. The sections follow the
order of the book from cover to cover, starting with the spine of the book and
ending with the back cover (inside flap).
On the bottom of each
webpage there are "Previous" and "Next" hyperlinks that
allow you to essentially navigate through the book page by page in the same
order as they appear
in the hardcopy.
On the top right-hand side are the breadcrumbs that allow you
to jump back to major sections. Figures, plates and tables
display as thumbnails throughout the text. Clicking on a thumbnail will open a
new window with the corresponding figure at full size.
throughout the text referring to figures, plates or tables will take you
directly to the corresponding image. Clicking on taxonomic names hyperlinked
throughout the text will take you to the description of the particular species.
If a name is found in the book (i.e. it has a taxon entry) the hyperlink will
take you to the main taxon entry; however, if a name is not described in the
book the hyperlink will take you to Ngā Tipu o Aotearoa - New Zealand Plants.
