Each butterfly's habits, range and important characteristics are described, while colour paintings show each butterfly in detail. There are sections on the four stages of the life-cycle of butterflies and on breeding butterflies. Sound advice on conservation issues is also offered. The book can be used as both a home reference and a pocket companion in the field.
