Target audience: Adults

Thomas Marent’s photography make this book a pleasure to peruse. Ronald Orenstein’s text contains the answers to questions regarding butterflies, moths and caterpillars from around the world. The overall message continues to be that restoring habitat may be crucial for butterflies with few natural refuges left in a changing world and a warming climate. For us this means conserving larval host plants and, for flower-feeding butterflies, adult nectar sources. Create a butterfly garden in your own yard this summer!
