About this book

This is a survey of the development and practice of butterfly conservation in south east Australia, tracing the evolution of the science through a series of cases from the focus on single subspecies through increasing levels of ecological complexity to critical biotopes and communities.

Butterfly Conservation in South-Eastern Australia summarises much previously scattered information, and provides access to much regional information of considerable interest to practitioners elsewhere.

Media reviews

"Essential reading for anyone undertaking conservation science. The insights and advice are built on a lifetime of theoretical and practical experience by one of the world's leading professional arthropod conservationists, well known for his publications [...] . In reading this book, you are left in no doubt that you are being taught by a master of the immensely difficult practice of conservation, in degrees of difficulty an arena well beyond the comparatively simple task of carrying out field research for publishing papers.
- Roger L. H. Dennis, Journal of Insect Conservation, Vol. 15, 2011
