The aim of this book is to present a readable account of butterfly behaviour, based on field observations, great photographs and the latest research. The main focus is on courtship and mating – including perching, searching and territorial behaviour – but to understand these subjects it is necessary to explain how mates are chosen and this requires sections on wing colours and patterns. A chapter on butterfly vision is also essential in terms of how butterflies see the world and each other. There have been exciting discoveries in all of these fields in recent years, including: butterfly vision (butterfly photoreceptors), wing patterns (molecular biology), wing colouration (structural colours and nano-architecture), mating strategies and female choice (ecology and behaviour).

THE CHARAXINAE BUTTERFLIES OF AFRICA is the first comprehensive book on the spectacular butterfly genera Charaxes, Palla and Euxanthe for the whole of the Afrotropical Region. It describes in detail ail one hundred and sixty two known species, and these are fully illustrated in colour. In addition to the adult butterfly, ail of which are illustrated full size, early stages of some one hundred and sixty species and sub-species are also depicted in colour and are fully described. There are numerous line drawings showing the diagnostic characteristics of the caterpillers. All the male genitalia of the morphologically similar etheocles species group are illustrated, as well as numerous colour photographs of the typical habitats of the butterfly in the wild. There are in excess of seven hundred and fifty colour illustrations. Keys to all the species and all the higher groups are provided. The final section of the book is made up of a synoptic list of all the Charaxinae species, a foodplant list and a list of species for every country in the Afrotropical region. Three new species and sixteen subspecies are also described for the first time. These new species and sub-species descriptions are by the author and by the other foremost authorities on the Charaxinae, Dr J. Plantrou, S.C. Collins, B. Turlin and Dr J. Guy-Canu. This definitive and monumental work will be an indispensible guide for the scientist as well for other interested naturalists.

In Butterflies: Ecology and Evolution Taking Flight, the world's leading experts synthesize current knowledge of butterflies to show how the study of these fascinating creatures as model systems can lead to deeper understanding of ecological and evolutionary patterns and processes in general. The twenty-six chapters are organized into broad functional areas, covering the uses of butterflies in the study of behavior, ecology, genetics and evolution, systematics, and conservation biology. Especially in the context of the current biodiversity crisis, this book shows how results found with butterflies can help us understand large, rapid changes in the world we share with them—for example, geographic distributions of some butterflies have begun to shift in response to global warming, giving early evidence of climate change that scientists, politicians, and citizens alike should heed. The first international synthesis of butterfly biology in two decades, Butterflies: Ecology and Evolution Taking Flight offers students, scientists, and amateur naturalists a concise overview of the latest developments in the field. Furthermore, it articulates an exciting new perspective of the whole group of approximately 15,000 species of butterflies as a comprehensive model system for all the sciences concerned with biodiversity and its preservation.
