Owing to the importance of butterflies as indicators of environmental quality and their usefulness as model systems to address ecological and evolutionary questions, butterfly biology has become a focus of research, especially in Europe. This book synthesizes all relevant and recent knowledge in the field, making this a definitive work for those making use of this taxonomic goup as a model system. It is divided into five major parts which deal with habitat use, population ecology and genetics, evolutionary ecology, distribution and phylogeny, and global change and conservation. There are growing numbers of scientific projects and networks in Europe in which the use of butterflies as tools and targets for conservation is central. Written by an international team of experts, this timely book is suitable for students, researchers and enthusiasts.
