Moths of Australia
This is the first comprehensive, reliable, well-illustrated book covering the enormous diversity of Australian moths, summarising our knowledge of them, and presenting much original work. More than 1,000 of the 10,000 named Australian species are figured in colour of halftone photographs. Also included is an up-to-date nomenclature and a wealth of information on distribution, larval food plants, and the fascinating behaviour of these often colourful insects. Emphasis is given to the living insects and the means they employ to cope with environmental pressures. There are also authoritative accounts of the structure, life history, biology, population control, economic significance, evolution and geographical distribution. A modern classification of the world fauna is provided, and detailed information on those families occurring in Australia, with descriptions and figures of egg, larval, pupal and adult structure, and discussions of the biology. A section on collecting and studying moths, a glossary, an index, a table of the larval food plants and an extensive list of references are additional features.
