The mountain ranges that form the spine of New Zealand are thought to be primarily Quaternary in age (e.g., Ghani, ;Tippett and Kamp, ;Shane et al., ).

New Zealand also has a unique biota due to its long isolation and is the last major land mass to be settled by people. Advances in DNA technologies have revolutionised our understanding of the histories and processes involved.

The field studies the current ice age and the recent interstadial, between numerous glaciations, the Holocene, and uses proxy evidence to reconstruct the past environments during this period to infer the climatic and environmental changes that have occurred. The discovery that orbital variations are the driving force behind Quaternary climate change provides an impetus to set local and regional records of environmental change into the global context, a principle that has been strongly embraced by Quaternary scientists working in New by:   The discovery that orbital variations are the driving force behind Quaternary climate change provides an impetus to set local and regional records of environmental change into the global context, a principle that has been strongly embraced by Quaternary scientists working in New by: After the melamine milk scandal inChina’s global imports of dairy products soared, especially after FTAs had been established with Australia and New Zealand.
