New Zealand Journal of Botany

There is growing worldwide interest in the flora of the austral region. The New Zealand Journal of Botany plays an important role in disseminating field-based, experimental, and theoretical research to researchers on all aspects of the botany, mycology, and phycology of  the region.

The New Zealand Journal of Botany aims to disseminate peer-reviewed research on the botany, mycology and phycology of New Zealand and the southern hemisphere. The Journal publishes original research papers, review papers, short communications, book reviews, letters and forum articles. We welcome submissions on all aspects of the botany, mycology and phycology of the South Pacific, Australia, South America and Southern Africa. The journal’s subject matter encompasses biosystematics and biogeography, ecology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, reproductive biology, structure and development, taxonomy, ethnobotany, palaeobotany, bryology, lichenology, mycology, plant pathology and phycology.
