Most avian extinctions on mainland New Zealand occurred either prior to AD 1500 (within 150 years of Māori arrival), or after European arrival post-1800AD. ‘Moa’ is treated here as a name for all nine species of moa, reflecting its indigenous usage; if this group of nine species is treated as one taxonomic unit, the loss of names would be commensurately higher for species in the 1350-1500 time period. See Table S2 for estimated extinction dates. Key avian extinction periods occurred shortly after Māori and European settlement periods. Grey represents bird species or groups for which the Māori name is no longer known, and black represents bird species or groups for which the Māori name has been retained
