Subject: Butterflies of the World
I'm very pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of my book
"Butterflies of the World".
The opening chapters feature extensive articles regarding the evolution,
lifecycle, anatomy, ecology and taxonomy of butterflies in general, with a
strong emphasis on the use of colour, pattern and behaviour as survival
The bulk of the book is devoted to describing the features that distinguish
all the families, subfamilies, tribes and major genera, and is lavishly
illustrated with 350 photographs taken of living butterflies in habitats
ranging from temperate grasslands and meadows to the rainforests and
cloudforests of South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The book is due for publication in April and is extraordinarily good value
at a mere GBP16.95.
It can be pre-ordered from NHBS and other booksellers:
A limited number of personally signed copies will be available directly
from me at a cost of GBP 25.00 including postage to mainland UK addresses.
Thanks for your time,
N.B Please note that I'll be in South America from 29th January until 10th
March and during that period my access to email will be very limited.
