About this book

Both amateur and professional butterfly enthusiasts (lepidopterists) will find this new book a delight when either visiting the National Botanical Gardens in South Africa or as a collection to their butterfly field guides. This publication is especially well-suited to 'new' lepidopterists, as the photographs are beautiful and large, and depict both male and female forms of the species. The text is brief and easy to under-stand, and both common and scientific names are used throughout. Butterflies of South Africa's National Botanical Gardens also contains a quick index (as well as a full index at the back), information on the Lepidopterist Society and information on the early butterfly collectors. It shows the locations of all the National Botanical Gardens and will encourage visitors to these gardens, as well as an interest in butterflies.
