About this book

Published to celebrate Donald Russwurm's ninety-fifth birthday, and containing eighty-four colour plates featuring over four hundred specimens, each one carefully observed and accurately painted by him, this book provides one of the most comprehensive treatments yet on the subject of variation in British butterflies. The underlying factors and genetic principles behind many of the striking aberrations figured are explained; many previously unpublished photographs of new and extreme aberrations are also included.
