About this book

Presents the findings of Butterflies for the New Millennium, the most comprehensive survey of butterflies ever undertaken in Britain and Ireland. After five years of recording by thousands of volunteers, it provides up-to-date assessment of the butterflies, the habitats they live in, the threats they face, and the major changes that have occurred since publication of the previous such atlas in 1984.
The body of the book is taken up with species accounts, each accompanied by a full-page distribution map and a colour photograph of the butterfly concerned. The book summarises the wealth of new information about butterfly ecology, incorporating findings from the Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, describes and illustrates the habitats favoured by particular communities of butterflies, and presents a vision of how these insects might be conserved in the future.

Contents

1: Background and Rationale; 2: Butterfly Habitats; 3: Recording and Data Collection; 4: Interpreting the Data; 5: Species Accounts; 6: The Pattern and Cause of Change; 7: Conserving Butterflies in the New Millennium.
