FIELD GUIDE BUTTERFLIES OF INDIA
About the Book
Butterflies, the winged jewels of nature, can be found in almost all terrestrial habitats in the Indian region. The colours, whether resplendent or cryptic, reflect perfect adaptation to their natural surroundings. This fully illustrated colour guide with photographs of more than 1000 species and subspecies of butterflies from the Indian subcontinent is a valuable addition to the literature on Lepidoptera. The books deals not only with the biology and identification of butterflies, but also has sections on butterfly watching and photography, and even guides readers on how to plan their own butterfly garden.
