Shane is a Biogeographer teaching at the University of Auckland who has worked in Oceania for many decades. He has a particular interest in the floras of the more ancient land masses such as New Caledonia. During the early 1990s he spent several months in that country working as part of an effort by Conservation International and the Native Forest Action Council to secure areas of protected land in that very impacted landscape. A substantial component of his teaching now includes study of New Caledonia and it’s ancient Gondwana biota. He has also travelled and worked extensively in South America.
