Aaron Wilton | Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research
This Local Contexts project encompasses the biological specimens housed at Manaaki Whenua that have been collected from the rohe (territory) of Ngāti Maru, Taranaki.
This project was created in agreement with representatives from Ngāti Maru, Taranaki. It includes specimens from:
Allan Herbarium (CHR);
International Collection of Microorganisms from Plants (ICMP);
New Zealand Arthropod Collection (NZAC) - Ko te Aitanga Pepeke o Aotearoa;
New Zealand Fungarium (PDD) Te Kohinga Hekaheka o Aotearoa;
and Te Kohinga Harakeke o Aotearoa – National New Zealand Flax Collection.
The records from these collections are a dynamic resource with changes that result from (agreed) collecting of new material, digitisation of historic collections, and curation of specimens (particularly re-identification) and their associated data (especially the correction or addition of georeference coordinates).
The records associated with this project may be viewed on the Systematics Collection Data portal using the Project Link.
Manaaki Whenua welcomes interest in collaborating to establish other Local Contexts projects. Please see our institutional record for other examples.
