This is a scientific monograph series presenting publications related to the New Zealand Threat Classification System (NZTCS).

Most will be lists providing NZTCS status of members of a plant or animal group (eg, algae, birds, spiders). There are currently 23 groups, each assessed once every 3 years.

After each three-year cycle there will be a report analysing and summarising trends across all groups for that listing cycle. From time to time the manual that defines the categories, criteria and process for the NZTCS will be reviewed.

Publications in this series are considered part of the formal international scientific literature.
