THE naturalists of New Zealand have always shown themselves eager to take advantage of any opportunity for extending our knowledge of the fauna and flora of their country. Such opportunities are presented from time to time by the periodical official visits of the Government steamer to the outlying islands. In November, 1907, the s.s. Hinemoa deposited a large party of New Zealand men of science on Auckland and Campbell Islands, calling for them again on her return trip more than a week later. The expedition was undertaken at the instance of the Philosophical Institute of Canterbury, primarily for the purpose of extending the magnetic survey of New Zealand to the outlying southern islands, but the volumes before us consist chiefly of zoological and botanical observations, though there are also articles on geophysics and geology.
