These are the native and exotic species that occur within the New Zealand Botanic Region which is defined in Flora of New Zealand Volume 1 by H.H. Allan (1961) as consisting of the islands lying within 29-55 degrees South latitude and 158 degrees East - 176 degrees West longitude (except Lord Howe Island and Norfolk Island). More information about exotic plants may be found under Threats.
