Clarkson B.R., Sorrell B.K., Reeves P.N., Champion P.D., Partridge T.R., Clarkson B.D. 2003: Handbook for monitoring wetland condition (Revised October 2004). Coordinated Monitoring of New Zealand Wetlands. A Ministry for the Environment Sustainable Management Fund Project (5105). doi:10.7931/J2Z60KZ3

New Zealand is obliged to monitor the health and condition of wetlands as a signatory to two international conventions (Convention on Biological Diversity and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands).

To assist with these requirements, this handbook describes a set of science-based indicators that have been developed to monitor the condition of New Zealand estuarine and palustrine wetlands. It has been designed for managers, landowners, community groups and anyone else with a need to monitor the condition of wetlands.
