Records of the Auckland Museum

Records of the Auckland Museum (formerly 'Records of the Auckland Institute and Museum'), contain results of original research on the Museum collections, and research by Museum staff in their particular subjects. 'Records of the Auckland Museum' has been published more or less annually since 1930.

Records volumes since 1930 contain more than 450 articles written by over 150 different authors and co-authors dealing mostly with zoology, archaeology, ethnology, and botany.

The articles contain important accounts of archaeological excavations and ethnographic objects, and descriptions of nearly 700 new taxa (mostly new animal species and subspecies) – a major contribution to the documentation of New Zealand's biodiversity.
