An interactive guide to the bryozoans of New Zealand.
Bryozoans—also known as moss animals and sea mats—are little known by most people but are a beautiful and diverse group adapted to live in many marine habitats, from the intertidal zone to the continental shelf, deep ocean trenches, and abyssal plains.
The guide is a fully illustrated interactive pdf with high-quality images of the bryozoans in life. Just click on an image in the species index and you will be taken to a species page packed with information, beautiful images, and icons to simplify identification. An additional microscopic characters box is provided to take identifications further if desired.
