“This book provides a broad survey of the science of butterfly conservation, together with a rationale for conserving butterflies. It introduces butterfly classification and biology, and discusses the causes of declining populations. Current attempts in several countries to conserve particular species, local assemblages and whole butterfly faunas are described. For this edition, Tim New has added sections dealing with recent developments, such as the impact of the ‘metapopulation concept’ on understanding butterfly populations and their management. He has also comprehensively incorporated the results of recently published research. This book will be of interest to entomologists, naturalists and conservationists, and will be especially valuable to those studying the conservation and management of invertebrates.”
