'The Butterflies of Britain & Ireland' provides comprehensive coverage of all our resident and migratory butterflies, including the latest information on newly discovered species such as Cryptic Wood and the Geranium Bronze. 'The Butterflies of Britain and Ireland' is widely considered not only the best butterfly book ever published but also one of the classic nature books. When first published in 1991 it won the Natural World Book of the Year Award and won plaudits from all quarters. Fully revised, considerably expanded and reset in 2010, it was judged that year's 'Guardian' Nature Book of the Year. Now revised again to reflect the latest research findings, and with up-to-date distribution maps, this remarkable book is the guide to the appearance, behaviour, life cycle and ecology of the butterflies of Britain and Ireland.
