Climo, M.; Stott, M.B. 2015 Some like it hot : life in New Zealand's geothermal environments. Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science miscellaneous series 77 14 p.

Abstract:  This 16 page booklet will introduce you to New Zealand’s geothermal environments and the life that calls them home. Microorganisms, insects and plants have made geothermal areas their home by adapting to extremes of temperature, acidity and alkalinity, turbidity and toxicity. Explore these aquatic and terrestrial habitats - hot pools, warm streams, heated soils - and discover the native residents and visiting tourists to these ecosystems. Learn how to spot the signs of life, and find out why geothermal areas smell and are so brightly coloured!
