Review quote

"Butterflies are key organisms for the monitoring of biodiversity, and constitute an important system for testing scientific hypotheses in ecology, evolution, and animal behavior. The main reason they can play these important roles is that the widespread interest they attract has led to the publication of many books detailing their taxonomy and biology. This wonderful new volume on Australian butterflies could serve as a model for a new generation of books that will make butterflies an even more important tool for helping humanity understand and manage its crucial life-support systems."
