About this book

A valuable review of what is known about the biology, behaviour, and lifestyles of butterflies, this authoritative volume is enhanced by the unique personal observations of coauthor Ken Preston-Mafham. These are based on his field study in many countries, gathering information and photographs for this book. There is a special emphasis on the often spectacularly patterned species of Africa and South America, while species from the rest of the world are also adequately covered. Reissue: First published in 1998.
