9780198540311: The Lepidoptera: Form, Function and Diversity (Natural History Museum Publications)

The Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) are one of the largest groups of insects with over 150,000 known species. This is the first single-volume reference work on the biology and systematics of these fascinating creatures. Part I reviews the main body parts with discussion of their function and importance in the life of the organisms. Other chapters cover feeding, flight, migration, hearing, defense, sound production, and many other aspects of lepidopteran life. The environmental significance of Lepidoptera, summarized in Part II, is discussed in terms of larvae and caterpillars as herbivores and prey for birds, mammals, and other insects. Part III is a global overview describing biology, classification, and evolutionary relationships within and between lepidopteran groups. This book will be an indispensable resource for naturalists, professional entomologists, and conservationists for years to come.

Review:


"A useful addition to the library of both the specialist and the generalist. The best source currently available for detailed information on these much-loved insects." --Choice


"This book is an excellent compendium of information that will be a useful reference for a long time to come. The text is easy to read. The line drawings are excellent and the large black and white plates are also excellent. . . . I was so fascinated with the information, that I read it from cover to cover in a couple of days. . . . this is one book that will be valid forever." --The Ohio Lepidopterist
