* Introduces a systems approach to butterfly biology

* Includes succinct reviews of the key interrelationships in butterfly life history and behaviour

* Illustrates more than 100 models to advance research into butterfly biology systems

Explores key topics and contentious issues in butterfly biology, specifically those in life history and behaviour. Uniquely, using a systems approach, the book focuses on the degree of integration and feedback between components and elements affecting each issue, as well as the links between different issues. The book comprises four sections. The first two sections introduce the reader to principles and approaches for investigating complex relationships, and provide a platform of knowledge on butterfly biology. The final two sections deal in turn with life history and behaviour, covering key issues affecting different stages of development from eggs to adults. The book is extensively illustrated with original diagrams and models, all of which have detailed legends, produced to enhance a broader understanding, and to provide templates for future research. It includes a detailed bibliography and glossary providing an essential gateway to the extensive literature on butterfly biology. This book is essential reading for graduate students and researchers in insect ecology, evolution, behaviour and conservation. It will also be of great value to anyone interested in butterflies.


Researching entomologists particularly those working on any aspects of butterfly biology, behaviour and ecology. All insect ecologists, and conservation biologists. Graduate students in entomology, animal ecology and applied ecology and conservation.
