" In a newly published review of all 135 or so New Zealand’s prion colonies (see Jamieson, S.; Tennyson, A.; Wilson, K.-J.; Crotty, E.; Miskelly, C.; Taylor, G.; Waugh, S. 2016. A review of the distribution and size of prion colonies throughout New Zealand. Tuhinga 27: 56-80), we conclude that a lack of data on the distribution and number of all prion species severely limits our ability to draw any conclusions about population sizes or to assess current population trends.
