In this, the 2002 Banks Memorial Lecture, I have two main aims. First, I will trace what has been discovered by botanists about the Mt Taranaki/Egmont flora since Joseph Banks scanned the mountain from the deck of Cook’s Endeavour in 1770. Second, I will discuss some of the results of my own garden and natural experiments, conducted in more recent times.
