New Biological Books. 100 Butterflies and Moths: Portraits from the Tropical Forests of Costa Rica. By Jeffrey C Miller, Daniel H Janzen, and Winifred Hallwachs. Cambridge (Massachusetts): Harvard University Press.

Gathered by biologists Daniel Janzen and Winifred Hallwachs in the forests of northwestern Costa Rica, 100 tropical butterflies and moths represent the diversity in large-format photographs by Jeffrey Miller that document the dizzying variety of shapes, colors, and markings. The authors recount these insects' feats of mimicry and migration, lift the veil on their courtship, and show how the new technology of DNA barcoding is changing the picture of Lepidopteran biodiversity.

100 Butterflies and Moths book. Gathered in the forests of north-western Costa Rica, this is a guide to the variety of shapes, colours, and markings of 100 butterflies and moths.

Jeffrey C. Miller, Daniel H. Janzen, Winifred Hallwachs. Elsewhere, vivid yellow and orange sulphur butterflies flock to puddles to sip the concentrated minerals. Such is the dazzling variety of the butterflies and moths unique to this region.

Winifred Hallwachs (born October 11, 1954) is an American tropical ecologist who helped to establish and expand northwestern Costa Rica's Área de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG). In 1999, ACG was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The work of Hallwachs and her husband Daniel Janzen at ACG is considered an exemplar of inclusive conservation

Walking a forest trail in Costa Rica, a visitor might be struck by the sight of an iridescent blue morpho butterfly fluttering ahead in the filtered daylight, or an enormous silk moth, as magnificently patterned and subtly colored as a Persian carpet, only emerging to fly at night. Elsewhere, vivid yellow and orange sulphur butterflies flock to puddles to sip the concentrated minerals. Such is the dazzling variety of the butterflies and moths unique to this region.

Gathered by biologists Daniel Janzen and Winifred Hallwachs in the forests of northwestern Costa Rica, 100 tropical butterflies and moths represent the diversity in large-format photographs by Jeffrey Miller that document the dizzying variety of shapes, colors, and markings. The photographs are accompanied by species accounts and images of the corresponding caterpillar. The authors recount these insects' feats of mimicry and migration, lift the veil on their courtship, and show how the new technology of DNA barcoding is changing the picture of Lepidopteran biodiversity.

The authors also tell the success story of Area de Conservacion Guanacaste, where the long-term work of Janzen and Hallwachs, a team of caterpillar collectors, and the participation of neighboring farming communities has deepened understanding of Costa Rica's Lepidoptera and has brought about advances in restoration ecology of tropical habitats, biodiversity prospecting, biotechnology, and ecotourism development.

This book has good text but the selection of butterflies is not very extensive and the photos are of marginal quality with only the dorsal (top) of the buttery showing. I can see why it is cheap.

Rich texture and colors... a magnificent book in both the telling and presentation. The photography could not possibly have been better! Its use is not just the visual enjoyment and behavioral understanding that is available but even the practical ability to teach color and texture usage to a group of young women as they were planning knitting projects. Thank you so much on many frontiers this is better than any color book I have ever found. The unique beauty in creation does the best job of explaining the richness that colors represent and the uplifting of beauty that they bring into our lives. As always any reading that can give to us a better understanding of faraway places by bringing them home, as this book has done with the rain forest and its inhabitants, is a worthy read. Thank you!

Tons of photos of butterflies very close up. My only wish for change would be more photos of butterflies in different positions.

Bought this book and 100 caterpillars for coffee table books in our Costa Rica house. Both books have beautiful photography.

This book was exactly as advertised and as expected. The photography is stunning in its simplicity and beauty. Wish we would have purchased the hardcover volume. Great value for the price!
This ia an excellant book that combines coffe-table quality photographs of the butterflies and moths with an excellent text describing interesting aspects of their biology.
