The thermal regions of the central North Island of New Zealand are some of the most extensive in the world. In addition, they are readily accessible and contain a diversity of ecological habitats, including a large number at 100°C. These areas are regarded as an important tourist attraction, and as a source of geothermal power, It is now clear that they also contain an important and unique genetic resource.
