About this book

The first rigorous modern, cladistic study of this large family and the first available treatment worldwide, using multiple character systems from both adults and immature stages. There is a clear definition of subfamilial taxa of the Arctiidae based on shared derived characters, and it includes q testable hypothesis of their relationships and of the tribes within the Arctiinae, the sub-family of greatest interest to ecologists and researchers.
