About this book

The Convention on Biological Diversity set a world target: "to achieve by 2010 a significant reduction of the current rate of biodiversity loss". The EU went further, aiming to halt biodiversity loss by 2010. In March 2010, the charity Butterfly Conservation held its 6th International Symposium on 'The 2010 Target and Beyond for Lepidoptera'. Lepidoptera Conservation in a Changing World, edited by John Dover, Martin Warren and Tim Shreeve and with a Foreword by Sir David Attenborough, is a collection of papers from that meeting.

Lepidoptera Conservation in a Changing World documents the failure to achieve the 2010 targets and the urgent need to redouble conservation efforts. Papers presented on 'Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation', 'The Science of Conservation Management', 'Landscape-scale Conservation' and 'Future Challenges' illustrate some of the problems we face, but also demonstrate that, with the application of the right tools and knowledge and with sufficient determination, butterflies, moths, and their habitats can have a secure future.

Media reviews

"This volume is an essential resource for anyone interested in conservation for insects in general, and especially for Lepidoptera. I would also recommend this to those interested in lepidopteran biology in general since significant articles within cover the natural history, behavior, and ecology of many key species. Most notably the papers on efficient surveying techniques will be valuable for monitoring lepidopteran biodiversity in our current environment of fiscal austerity."
- Jason J. Dombroskie, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 89 (2), June, 2014
