Moths are more diverse and numerous than butterflies, occupy a far wider variety of habitats that their lepidopteran counterparts, yet are a fairly neglected group. This monograph paints a broad picture of moth biology and ecology: their breeding, feeding, distribution and life history as well as the specialized aspects of their behaviour, using many examples from the moth faunas of Britain and Europe. Their interactions with host plants, their anti-predator responses, and the threats arising from the degradation to their natural habitats are also explored.
