 Description

by Marc C. Minno and Maria Minno
Univ. Press of Florida; 8.5" x 11"; 224 pages

This is a complete reference for Florida gardeners who wish to attract butterflies to their gardens with both host and nectar plants. It provides sound information on how to identify butterflies (including skippers) as well as an understanding of their biology, behavior, life cycle, and Florida habitats. Both useful and beautiful, it is the first book to cover, in full color, the adult, larval, and pupal stages and host plants of more than 60 butterflies and a dozen of our most interesting moth species.

Beginning chapters discuss in plain language the biology, behavior, distribution, and identification of Florida butterflies. Chapters devoted to gardening explain easy methods of planning and planting a butterfly garden, including nectar plants and plants recommended for wet, dry, or shady areas. Also included are a checklist of Florida butterflies, a resource guide to butterfly and plant supplies and suppliers, and twelve hands-on science inquiry activities to help teachers and parents use their butterfly garden as an outdoor classroom in accordance with Sunshine State Standards. Authoritative, clear text, together with illustrations by noted wildlife artist Diane Pierce and more than 400 photos of butterflies and plants, make this a must-have reference for gardeners, butterfly enthusiasts, and teachers.

Marc C. Minno is a biologist with the St. Johns River Water Management District and author of Butterflies of the Florida Keys.
