Dunedin: Otago University Press, 2012. Octavo, laminated boards, colour photographs.
From Kiribati, Tuvalu and Fiji in the west, to the far-flung Marquesas and Austral Islands in French Polynesia in the east, the Pacific Ocean covers over 50 million square kilometres. This book surveys (and discovers) the butterfly inhabitants of these tropical islands. For completeness, Hawai'i to the north and to the south temperate New Zealand, are also included. Species accounts include full colour photographs and details of wingspan, distribution, status and foodplants. The final chapter considers the impacts of human migration and population growth, and identifies conservation issues.
