About this product
- DescriptionInsects boast incredible diversity, and this book treats an important component of the western insect biota that has t been summarized before - moths and their plant relationships. There are about 8,000 named species of moths in our region, and although most are unticed by the public, many attract attention when their larvae create ecomic damage: eating holes in woolens, infesting stored foods, boring into apples, damaging crops and garden plants, or defoliating forests.In contrast to previous North American moth books, this volume discusses and illustrates about 25 per cent of the species in every family, including the tiny species, making this the most comprehensive volume in its field. With this approach it provides access to microlepidoptera study for biologists as well as amateur collectors. About 2,500 species are described and illustrated, including virtually all moths of ecomic importance, summarizing their morphology, taxomy, adult behavior, larval biology, and life cycles.
