Lammerlaw Range

The Lammerlaw Range is in the Otago region of New Zealand.[1] It is an important watershed. The origins of the placename are Scottish. Windfarms have been sited in the area. The area includes distinctive geology including ribbon fens and peat habitats.[2] The Lammerlaw and Lammermoor Ranges also include tussock grasslands.[3] Parts of the ranges are in Te Papanui Conservation Park. The endangered Eldon's galaxias (Galaxias eldoni) is found in the range.
