Contains up-to-date taxonomy and nomenclature for the almost 1,500 species and numerous sub-species found in this diverse region. Butterflies of West Africa covers the fifteen countries between Senegal and Nigeria, from the tropical rainforests to the edge of the Sahara desert: Mauritania, The Gambia, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria and Niger. This is the most in-depth treatment of butterfly species for these countries - a major achievement.
