about

Butterfly enthusiasts, nature lovers, and curious general readers will perhaps be surprised to learn that Florida's butterfly fauna is unique--and that, until the appearance of this volume, there has been no adequate field guide for the butterflies of this region. This guide simplifiesidentification by illustrating only species found in Florida--using superb photographs of live butterflies coupled with detailed range maps and identification data. It also offers, with unprecedented detail, much information on flight times and abundances for each of five Florida subregions,including reports on 70 localities in which to find butterflies. Lastly, discussions of the foodplants for each species along with suggestions for attracting these species to one's garden make this work invaluable for all Florida gardeners interested in butterflies.
Jeffrey Glassberg is President of the North American Butterfly Association and editor of American Butterflies magazine. Marc C. Minno is a former Co-editor of the News of the Lepidopterists' Society. John V. Calhoun is Research Associate at the Florida State Collection of Arthropods.

"[The Butterflies through Binoculars series] may do for butterflies what Roger Tory Peterson's landmark handbooks did for birds in the 1930s."--The Village Voice
