New Zealand Lizards Database

Landcare Research's New Zealand Lizards Database is a searchable online system that provides access to information describing the lizard species of New Zealand.

It includes:

  • A series of species synopses describing lizard species of New Zealand, their taxonomic and conservation status, distribution, conservation requirements, and factors such as ecology, behaviour, and population dynamics.
  • An up-to-date annotated bibliography of New Zealand lizard literature. The original bibliography was compiled by Tony Whitaker and Bruce Thomas in 1990 and, together with new material, the online version now contains a list of over 3000 published and unpublished articles.
