Description

Bring Butterflies Back is a follow-up to the much acclaimed Bring Nature Back to your Garden by the same authors. It is unique in being the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information on all indigenous South African butterfly larval food-plants. The book emphasizes the contribution people can make to nature by actually providing food for caterpillars, giving practical examples. It includes a chapter with the Latin and common names of all our approximately 670 butterfly species. There is an intriguing further chapter on bizarre
butterfly lifestyles: few people know, for example, that some butterfly larvae are carnivorous and abuse the hospitality of ants which host them, by eating their unsuspecting offspring. Most useful are descriptions of over 500 plants selected by our butterflies themselves. All
known indigenous larval food-plants are included.
