9781118409213: Lepidoptera and Conservation

The third in a trilogy of global overviews of conservation of diverse and ecologically important insect groups. The first two were Beetles in Conservation (2010) and Hymenoptera and Conservation (2012). Each has different priorities and emphases that collectively summarise much of the progress and purpose of invertebrate conservation. 

Much of the foundation of insect conservation has been built on concerns for Lepidoptera, particularly butterflies as the most popular and best studied of all insect groups. The long-accepted worth of butterflies for conservation has led to elucidation of much of the current rationale of insect species conservation, and to definition and management of their critical resources, with attention to the intensively documented British fauna ‘leading the world’ in this endeavour. 

In Lepidoptera and Conservation, various themes are treated through relevant examples and case histories, and sufficient background given to enable non-specialist access. Intended for not only entomologists but conservation managers and naturalists due to its readable approach to the subject.

From the Back Cover:

Lepidoptera, the butterflies and moths, is the leading flagship group for advancing interest in insect conservation. One of the largest insect orders, with numerous intricate ecological interactions, their long aesthetic attraction to naturalists and collectors has contributed to a unique cumulative historical record of information on diversity, biology, habitat relationships, distribution, and interactions with people. Collectively, this information has ensured that many declines and extinctions of species – particularly of butterflies in the northern hemisphere – have been brought forcefully and unambiguously to human notice. Both theoretical and practical aspects of their conservation have proliferated in recent decades, and the relevant scientific literature on Lepidoptera ecology and conservation (both peer-reviewed and in unpublished reports) continues to burgeon in extent and complexity.

This book is a global overview of Lepidoptera conservation and its roles in providing lessons for wider insect conservation. It brings together some of the highly scattered information into a synthesis for research workers, conservation managers, naturalists and students, in a manner that assumes little previous knowledge, and provides a substantial list of relevant references for further information. The book emphasises the contrasts between the progress possible for the better-documented northern temperate regions and for the rest of the world, but examples and cases noted demonstrate also the increasing urgency and novel initiatives that continue to develop.

About the Author:

Tim New is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Zoology, La Trobe University, Melbourne. He has written extensively on insectconservation, including volumes on Hymenoptera (2012) and beetles (2010) both published by Wiley-Blackwell. An entomologist with wide interests in insect conservation, systematics and ecology, he is recognised as one of the leading advocates for the importance of insects in conservation.
