Butterflies of Suriname: A Natural History is the first book on Surinamese butterflies in 160 years and is the result of six years of research by the authors.
After introductory chapters on the plants, rainforest and the various habitats of Suriname, the biology of butterflies and the rich history of their study is discussed. This is followed by a detailed description of 150 species from all families. Appendices contain additional information on Maria Sybilla Merian, Pieter Cramer and glossaries of local names of animals and plants, as well as of technical terms. With almost 300 photographs and figures in the text, nearly all especially made in Suriname for this book, and more than 600 photographs on 52 plates, this book should be read by every Surinamese, interested biologist, tourist and other lover of the nature of Suriname.
