Exotic grassland predominates throughout New Zealand. It has replaced indigenous forest in the North Island and both forest and tussock in the South Island. New Zealand’s remaining indigenous forest is mainly on the West Coast of the South Island and in the hills and mountains of the central North Island. A large area of exotic forest on the Central Plateau is evident, as is the low-producing grassland throughout the dry regions of Otago and Canterbury.
