About this book

The authors of this colourfully illustrated softback are drawing attention to Singapore's butterfly caterpillars. These creatures which at times are regarded as pests, but are actually the ugly ducklings which turn into colourful winged beings that delight all beholders. Altogether 80 caterpillars are described and photographed with views of the egg and pupa stages. Scientific and habitat data are given. An illustrated section on Singapore's greening and biodiversity policies includes discussion of butterfly distribution and habitat preferences, and Singapore's butterfly gardens. With host plant lists, glossary, bibliography, species and name lists for plants and for butterflies and details of the Butterfly Circle. A slip-out identification guide is included.
