Butterflies of the South Pacific

ISBN: 978 1 877578 04 5

It is easy to misjudge butterflies as fragile flying insects: their distribution across a wild and expansive Pacific Ocean proves otherwise. Long ago they colonised by flight isolated and tiny atolls and they continue to claim new territory. Others came by land bridges when sea levels were lower, to mark out their distribution and perhaps establish new species. This book surveys (and discovers) the butterfly inhabitants of the South Pacific.
