Butterflies of Britain and Ireland 3rd Edition Butterflies of Britain and Ireland 3rd Edition

When first published in 1991 ‘Butterflies of Britain & Ireland' was widely acclaimed and went on to win the Natural History Book of the Year award. However, after it sold out in the early 1990s it was never reprinted. This completely revised edition brings this classic up to date. More than a dry identification guide this book is characterised by its highly readable text and fascinating insights into latest research. Each species account contains a wide variety of illustrations, including adult, larva and pupa, as well as a distribution map and lifecycle chart.
