Overview

Among the most beautiful creatures in nature, butterflies are colorful, delicate, and, like people, tend to prefer warm weather. Enter the magical world of butterflies with Dr. Jeffrey Glassberg, president of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) and pioneer of the new frontier of butterfly watching.

Increasingly viewed as a precious wildlife resource to be conserved-rather than preserved under glass-butterflies are more and more being studied in their natural habitats. Instead of carrying nets, butterfly hunters now travel with the new breed of close-range binoculars and cameras in hand when they search for specimens. And as more information has become readily available about the food plants butterflies favor, many people are creating gardens specifically designed to attract butterflies.

In a unique format designed for both beginning and advanced lepidopterists, and highlighted with magnificent color photographs of hundreds of these lovely creatures-including numerous oversized photographs for easy identification—Butterflies of North America is a handy guide to identifying nearly every species of North American butterfly. The introduction includes vital information about butterfly behavior and biology, close-range binoculars and cameras, and the benefits of butterfly conservation. The main body of the book, the Species Guide, contains fascinating details about thousands of butterflies, including such distinguishing features as forewing length, what they eat, their range, and unique behavioral characteristics.

With more than 250 gorgeous full-color photographs and definitive information about thousands of different butterflies, Dr. Glassberg's Butterflies of North America is an essential and easy-to-use resource for all butterfly lovers.

Dr. Jeffrey Glassberg is president of the North American Butterfly Association and editor of American Butterflies magazine. Though his heart belongs to (and most of his books are about) butterflies, Glassberg is also the author and editor of numerous best-selling books about nature-watching in general. He regularly travels around the world to observe and photograph butterflies, but he lives in and writes from his home in New Jersey.
