About this book

Represents a completely new approach and is aimed at those who wish to find and identify butterflies encountered in the field quickly and easily while promoting their conservation. Full colour throughout allows the text to be arranged alongside the illustrations of the butterflies, and the text itself deliberately focuses on features that complement the photographs and facilitate identification. This is the only guide that includes the Canaries, Azores, Madeira, and all the Aegean islands and contains numerous unique photographs and information about their biology that has never been published before.

... photographs, detailed maps, and succinct text that will help observers quickly and accurately identify butterflies they encounter in the field. Science, Sept 2001
