About this book

Butterflies: Identification and Life-History aims to provide naturalists, bushwalkers and interested others with a detailed account of butterflies found in Victoria and beyond. Illustrates the full life-cycle of the butterfly. The latest imaging technology has been used to photograph butterfly eggs which, when magnified, reveal a spectacular and diverse array of colours and forms. Information on butterfly behaviour, biology and habitat are all covered in this fascinating book. Species descriptions are accompanied by stunning colour photographs of all the life stages of the butterfly, as well as their food plants or habitat. Although based on butterflies in Victoria, most species can be found all along the east coast of Australia. A handy checklist in the back of Butterflies: Identification and Life-History provides an instant summary of which species can be found in each state.
