By Thomas J. Allen

Гусеницы очень разнообразны и необычны, а по окраске часто не уступают бабочкам, в которые они превращаются. Книга является наиболее детальным определителем этих созданий. Она содержит всю информацию, необходимую для поиска и определения гусениц Северной Америки, от самых крупных парусников до самых мелких голубянок. Собиратели гусениц научатся, как различать гусениц дневных и ночных бабочек, где и как искать гусениц, как различать гусениц младших и старших возрастов. Описание каждого вида дополнено яркими фотографиями, многие из которых публикуются впервые. Для облегчения использования в поле, приведено описание диагностических свойств, обилия, местообитаний и кормовых растений. Книга содержит главу с рекомендациями по устройству садов бабочек, включая вопросы поддержания здоровья гусениц при разведении.

Moths of Western North America

Bugs boast fantastic range, and this booklet treats a big part of the western insect biota that has no longer been summarized before--moths and their plant relationships. There are approximately 8,000 named species of moths in our area, and even though such a lot are not noted by way of the general public, many allure cognizance whilst their larvae create monetary harm: consuming holes in woolens, infesting kept meals, uninteresting into apples, destructive plants and backyard vegetation, or defoliating forests.
