Butterflies are an abundant and diverse group of animals that are a conspicuous part of virtually all the world’s terrestrial ecosystems. They appeal to people in a unique way. Popular imagination often separates butterflies from insects, as if the former are an entirely distinct group of animals. The study and watching of butterflies perhaps ranks second only to ornithology as a pastime for naturalists. Unlike most other insects, including moths their closest relatives-butterflies are accepted readily in cultures and celebrated in aesthetics.
Butterflies of India contains over 650 colour photographs of 255 species of butterflies found across the different sub-regions of India. The book features relative abundance status, distribution, seasonality, identification characters, the larval food plants of each species of butterfly and more such interesting details.
This handy guide designed for field identification is a must have for all nature lovers.
