The classic guide to the butterflies of Britain and northern Europe enters its third edition as part of the authoritative Collins Guide series. This comprehensive guide describes and illustrates all 440 species, depicting both males and females and – where there is significant variation – subspecies. Distribution maps accompany every widespread species, and the text covers all taxonomic nomenclature, distributions, flight periods, variations, habitats, behaviour, life cycles and conservation. An ideal field guide for butterfly enthusiasts and naturalists alike.
