Media reviews

All in all, an indispensable feast of feathery little beasts.' Globe & Mail The Butterflies of Canada is at once a field guide, a butterfly life-history reference, a coffee table book, a source for encouraging further study, and perhaps a benchmark for other future natural history publications. Both casual and serious naturalists will enjoy this book as an addition to their ever-growing libraries.' The Victoria Naturalist 'Even those who don't have lepidopterist leanings will find it hard not to admire the lively colour and visual appeal the photographs of butterflies offer.' Quill & Quire
