Abstract:European explorers and naturalists made many contributions to
the discovery and description of New Zealand's natural history. These contributions
are examined with respect to the scientific traditions of England,
France, and Germanic Europe. Underlying differences between these countries
had a notable effect on science in New Zealand. Some countries regarded
science as linked to colonization. Others believed that even on the periphery,
science could be pursued for its own sake.
