Drawing together successful research and conservation projects this handbook covers butterfly conservation in both theory and practice. There are sections covering ecology, breeding, education, survey and monitoring, and the law. The main part of the book describes the main butterfly habitats along with principles for their management. Included are grasslands, hedgerows and field margins, woodlands, heathlands, moors, wetlands and coastal areas. Urban and recreational lands are also covered, and butterfly and caterpillar foodplants listed. Finally, there is a section devoted to conservation in the UK which outlines the habitat requirements of Britain's most vulnerable and threatened species.
