This major reference offers a full-scale treatment of British butterfly ecology, and is the first such work for thirty years. It brings together new ideas, facts and data from recent studies, to discuss individual butterfly behaviour and adaptations, population dynamics, community structure, distributions and habitats, and underlying genetics and evolutionary pathways. Monitoring of butterfly populations, and the conservation of British butterflies are also covered.
