About this book

Based on approximately 18 500 records covering over 800 species, this is the first ever published atlas of the smaller moths (Microlepidoptera) of Shropshire.

Located in west-central England on the border with Wales, Shropshire offers a wide diversity of habitats over an altitudinal range from below 100 m to above 500 m. Its topography produces climatic patterns that strongly influence moth distributions, and it stands at a crossroads where species of warm, dry lowland Britain meet those of the cool, wet uplands.

The Smaller Moths of Shropshire describes the status and distribution of Shropshire's smaller moths and examines their relationships with climatic factors, habitat types and host plants. It explores evidence of long-distance migration and local and regional dispersal, and discusses the impact of habitat management on smaller moth populations.

The Smaller Moths of Shropshire is one of a number being published to examine the distribution of some of Shropshire's invertebrate groups.
