Abstract: During the 1950s, dieback of southern rata (Metrosideros
umbel/ata) and kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa) was documented in the conifer/
hardwood forests of the Kokatahi and Fox catchments in Westland, New
Zealand. Thirty years later, southern rata was usually absent as a live tree in
dieback stands. Kamahi, although absent from the canopy in the Kokatahi,
had partially recovered at Fox, where it was still a dominant canopy species.
Regeneration studies on a range of sites indicate that in the short term, kamahi
and Quintinia acutifolia will become the structurally dominant canopy species
in many of the dieback stands, and southern rata will at best be a minor
component.
