DOC Science & Technical Publishing
The New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) publishes a wide range of documents on the work it does, from scientific notes and threatened species recovery plans to management plans and annual reports. The publications in this Science & technical section record the output of science investigations undertaken by DOC's Science & Technical Group, staff and contractors. We publish several series, stand-alone books, science posters, and pamphlets.
We release new publications regularly, so keep an eye on our new publications webpage for updates, or subscribe to our monthly memo (electronic or hardcopy).

Other published reports
The reports from some of our science investigations are published in professional journals. These reports are listed in our catalogue, but are not available through this website or from DOC. They may be consulted through libraries, or enquiries can be made directly to the journal concerned.
The online catalogue on this website lists all of our publications, including abstracts and links to the pdf where available. Annually we produce a catalogue of the publications produced in the previous year. These are available for download, or can be requested in hard copy.
