Book Description

3 Feb 1992 0195532287 978-0195532289
Many butterflies have declined in abundance during recent decades, and aspects of their conservation engender concern and effort in many parts of the world. This book is a broad survey of the emerging science of butterfly conservation. It traces the more general concern for invertebrate well-being, the causes of butterfly decline and - within the context of a summary of butterfly biology and using examples from several countries - illustrates how attempts are now in progress to conserve particular butterfly species, local assemblages and whole faunas. The references and practical advice given should be of interest to a wide range of entomologists, naturalists and conservationists.

Product Description


"This book addresses butterfly species, conservation and management of butterfly habitat, and hands on advice for butterfly aficionados to use in their own backyards. It even includes a recipe for a medium for raising butterfly larvae in captivity" --Wildlife Activist"This book provides a broad survey of the science of insect and butterfly conservation and the rationale for conserving both. Most of the book explores butterfly conservation and international efforts to safeguard species, including steps individuals can take to encourage and document butterfly conservation."--Entomological News"The first edition of this book was a landmark that presented a compelling case for conserving endangered butterflies throughout the world. The second edition adds and updates several case histories, and more fully presents current methodologies to facilitate scientifically sound conservation. . . . I came away from this comprehensive and useful book with a profound sense that our approach to conserving butterflies must shift from documenting dwindling numbers and engaging in last ditch firefights to promoting preservation of larger tracts of land in all terrestrial ecosystems. ButterflyConservation is a sobering reflection of the global biodiversity crisis resulting from human usurpation of natural environments."--The Quarterly Review of Biology"This book summarizes the latest, and scattered, information on the conservation of butterflies and the rationale of insect conservation and the part that butterflies play in this. Along with discussing butterfly conservation, the book also covers the classification, diversity, and biology of butterflies. This edition of the work has sections on recent developments, and more references added. Maps, charts, diagrams, and line drawings supplement the text." -- Biosis, Vol 50, No 10, Oct 22, 1998 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
