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 simplifies identification 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 seventy 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.


Both a butterfly ID guide & an illustrated manual for butterfly gardening in Florida-- the first to cover adult, larval, & pupal stages for 60+ butterfly & moth species. 400+ color photos, a butterfly checklist, & inquiry-based science activities for teachers.






Another installment in the Florida's Fabulous Series, this book has beautiful photos as well as fascinating trivia about butterflies scattered throughout the book. It also has a section on some of the common moths found in Florida.
