Introduksjonen inneholder informasjon om larvenes struktur og funksjon, atferd og evolusjon. Boka har utbredelseskart for alle arter. Boka er ikke på noen måte heldekkende, men vil i stor utstrekning dekke de fleste vanlige larver også i Norge.
About Field Guide to the Caterpillars of Great Britain and Ireland
‘A much-needed guide – you can’t truly understand a moth or a butterfly without first getting to know the caterpillar.’ – Nick Baker
This beautifully illustrated field guide covers caterpillars of the moth and butterfly species that are most likely to be encountered in the British Isles. The comprehensive introduction covers how to study caterpillars and provides a window into their diverse natural histories, while the species accounts cover status, field characters, similar species, habitat, foodplant and field notes, and are accompanied with up-to-date distribution maps.
