The Book of Caterpillars: A Life-Size Guide to Six Hundred Species from Around the World

David G James

Available from 5 October 2017. Butterflies and moths are among the most beautiful and most-studied creatures in nature. Caterpillars, the juvenile stage, are just as diverse, alluring, and fascinating – and deserve to be admired and observed just as closely. Now, with The Book of Caterpillars, they can be. This taxonomic survey profiles 600 key species from around the world, with spectacular imagery and authorative text. Each entry details the notable attributes of the species, uncovers their camouflage and forms, and describes the variety of the defenses that they employ. Glorious photographs show both a life-size view and a magnified close-up that reveals each caterpillar's intricate structure. Every entry also features a two-tone engraving of the adult specimen, emphasizing the wing patterns and tones, as well as a population distribution map, and table of essential information. A definitive resource for all enthusiasts, this is a visually stunning guide to some of the world's least-known creatures. 656 pages.
