Caterpillars of Eastern North America


Caterpillars of Eastern North America

A detailed account of the caterpillars of nearly 700 butterflies and moths found east of the Mississippi. The book provides information on the distribution, biology, and taxonomy of caterpillars beyond what is available in other popular works on Eastern butterflies and moths. The introductory chapter covers caterpillar structure, life cycle, rearing, natural enemies, photography, and conservation. Dozens of new foodplant records are presented and erroneous records are corrected. The guide includes 1,200 color photographs with up to six photos per species, including adults. The section titled Caterpillar Projects will be of special interest to educators. Every nature center, camp and school should have a copy of this handy for the "tell me about this caterpillar" questions that present themselves every spring and summer.
