About this book

Language: Swedish, with English abstracts and identification keys

The first volume of the Encyclopedia of the Swedish Flora and Fauna covers all 140 species of Nordic butterflies. The beautiful, detailed life-size illustrations of the butterflies and the high-quality printing alone make this book worthwhile. Included are all members of the families Hesperiidae, Papilionidae, Pieridae, Lycaenidae and Nymphalidae that are known in Sweden, as well as Denmark (incl. Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland and Norway (incl. Svalbard). Identification keys, taxonomy, and distribution maps are provided and each species is described in detail. The level of detail in the complete coverage of the subject, and the precise illustrations make this an invaluable reference tool as well as a beautiful book to behold.
