Twenty years of dedicated research by five Alberta naturalists have resulted in this definitive reference on the 181 species and subspecies of butterflies found in Alberta. User friendly, full colour keys are designed for quick identification of each species; 530 life-size colour photographs complement the authoritative species accounts.

Species accounts provide diagnostic identification features, life history, range and habitat, main flight period with earliest and latest collection records, ink illustrations of many larval food plants, and colour distribution maps. These maps illustrate collection localities in Alberta and ranges in North America.

The book contains 879 full colour photographs, including:

  • 483 life size photos showing upper and lower surfaces of each butterfly
  • 346 photos in colour keys
  • 50 photos of butterflies in their natural environment

Topics include:

  • History of butterfly collectors in Alberta
  • Butterfly gardening in Alberta
