About this book

&i;A Comstock Book
&o;The Saturniidae are among the largest and showiest moths in North America. This comprehensive work covers the life history, taxonomy, population biology, disease and parasitoids of a hundred species and sub-species of these Lepidoptera, as well as extensive notes on conducting original research. The adults and larvae of all species are illustrated in the colour plates, and there are also photographs of behaviour.
&i;`This book will undoubtedly become the standard reference on North American suturnnid moths for the next generation'&o; - Richard S. Peigler, Denver Museum of Natural History
