The Butterflies of Australia is a unique guide to help identify the nearly 400 species to which our continent plays host, but with its focus on living butterflies it is much more than identification guide.
Hundreds of meticulous illustrations show adult butterflies in life, flying or perched, courting or laying eggs. It is a broad non-technical introduction on butterfly biology, history, ecology, evolution and conservation. With a copy as a guide, the reader can appreciate the charm and purpose underlying butterflies? far from frivolous lives.
