Uniting the results of amateur study with the latest scientific research to paint a broad picture of all aspects of moth biology and ecology, this text uses many examples from the moth faunas of Britain and Europe to shed light on what is largely a neglected group. The breeding, feeding, distribution and life-history and ecology of moths are described as well as the more specialized aspects of their behaviour. Their interactions with host plants, their anti-predator responses, and the threats arising from the degradation of natural habitats are also all explored in this illustrated text.
