New Zealand is both a source of biogeographic problems, and of biogeographic ideas. The efforts of biogeographers to grapple with the implications of the revolution in the earth sciences are described. Hennig’s work on New Zealand flies and Croizat’s critique of biogeography are discussed. The ideas of these two biologists have found their fullest expression in recent work by biologists in New Zealand and New York.
