This beautiful book continues the Ozark Society Foundation's nature series created almost forty years ago and is the first time that all of Arkansas' rich population of butterflies and moths has been written about. Most of the butterflies and moths in this guide are found throughout the eastern United States and parts of the western states. Lori Spencer facilitates species identification by presenting detailed text entries alongside lavish, full-sized photographs. The book includes 263 species descriptions and more than 300 color photographs, among them shots of larvae. General information about butterfly gardening and prime butterfly locations is also included. Spencer discusses each species' life cycle, survival, anatomy, and behavior, as well as presenting collection of specimens. Maps break down the regions - and hot spots - where they are found. The guide features an extensive glossary and three indexes listing common names, scientific names, and caterpillar host plants.
