Description

The perfect introduction to butterflies in all their diversity.

Covering 500 species, subspecies and forms of butterflies, this book is a valuable and colorful guide to a remarkable insect group. Stunning images of butterflies, frequently in their natural habitat, complement the author's authoritative text and personal observations of Lepidoptera in the wild. Not only are the adult butterflies illustrated but, in certain instances, the caterpillars are shown as well.

500 Butterflies includes a wide array of species from all continents. The book is organized by genus and includes a cross-referenced index as well as a glossary.

For each species, the entry includes detailed information on its:

  • Natural history
  • Habitat
  • Distribution
  • Form
  • Behavior
  • Food and feeding
  • Species variations
  • Reproduction
  • Taxonomy
  • Survival.

Despite a history on Earth exceeding hundreds of millions of years, some butterfly species are mysteriously in decline and their continued existence is at risk. 500 Butterflies is a concise and attractive introduction to these fascinating insects and a useful resource for butterfly enthusiasts and naturalists of all ages.
