The Lepidopterists' Society's Basic Techniques manual is a 446-page book (including 82 pages of Appendices) packed with information for the study of Lepidoptera no matter what the reader's interests are. The introductory chapter tells where and when to look for butterflies: best bets are disturbed areas, edge zones (roadsides, railroad verges) and openings in the forest. Since each group of species has it's own habits and flight times, it is best to try different times, seasons and habitats.

Other chapters describe photo techniques, gardening for butterflies, and collecting methods. The latter subject is expanded to show how to obtain maximum scientific information within proper environmental guidelines. Both beginners and experienced students of Lepidoptera will find this book to be a valuable reference.

About the Author:

William D. Winter Jr., known familiarly as Dave, was a pediatrician practicing in the Boston area. He attended Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, and received his medical degree from Harvard University.

A life-long northeasterner, he developed an early interest in Lepidoptera. That interest deepened over many years, and was shared by his wife, Jo Brewer.

Together and separately they wrote articles and books about moths and butterflies, both scientific and popular, for young people as well as adults. Their book "Butterflies and Moths: A Companion to Your Field Guide" (1986) engagingly introduces readers to the enjoyment of moths and butterflies. Long active in The Lepidopterists' Society, Dave Winter was also an early advocate of butterfly gardening.

He will be remembered for his devotion to lepidopterology as an avocation, but the methods and resources he lays out in the present book will serve all lepidopterists well whether vocational or avocational. He died after completing a draft of this book.
