Abstract

The brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) Halyomorpha halys (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) is an invasive pest in North America and Europe that damages many plant species and invades human dwellings. It is regularly intercepted at Aotearoa/New Zealand’s borders but is not yet known to have established. Maori are partners in New Zealand’s biosecurity community and an understanding of the potential impact of any invasive alien species to their interests is essential. The known impacts of BMSB in published literature were reviewed with a focus on Maori plant taonga (valued or treasured plant species) in: (1) Maori commercial enterprises; (2) mara kai (food gardens); and (3) the natural estate. Many fruit and some vegetable species are likely to be affected by BMSB in commercial and non-commercial Maori horticulture but the impact of BMSB on indigenous/native and other taonga plant species in mara kai and the native estate is difficult to evaluate. BMSB poses a serious economic threat to some crop species of commercial value to Maori, as well as threat to some native taonga species. A kaupapa Maori approach examining unpublished matauranga (knowledge) would considerably broaden this understanding.

He ngarara raupatu kaha nei i te tini o nga tipu, te urutomo noa i te hunga tangata te ngarara nei. Ka kaha haukotingia te ngarara nei e te mana arai o Aotearoa heoi ano, kaore ano kia whakawhenua i a ia. E mahi tahi ana a Maori raua ko te hapori marukoiora, ano hoki e marama ana i te morearea o nga tipu tauiwi - e whai panga kia ratou. Te Tukanga. I arotake i nga tuhinga e hangai ana ki nga kopuratanga e mohio nei - e Maori ai te titiro o roto: (1) nga pakihi Maori (2) nga mara kai (3) te taiao ano hoki. Te Whakautu. He maha hoki nga huawhenua me nga huarakau ka pangia e te BMSB o roto i nga pakihi, i nga ahuone Maori heoi ano, te taea te whakatau i nga panga o te BMSB ki te iwi taketake me ona taonga o roto i nga mara kai. Te Whakakapinga. Kei tino raru etahi tipu e whai panga ki te Maori, nga tipu taketake ano hoki i te BMSB. Ma te tirohanga Maori e whakawhanui i nga mohiotanga.
