This lavishly illustrated guide enables explorers to identify the caterpillars of nearly 700 butterflies and moths found east of the Mississippi. The more than 1,200 color photographs and two dozen line drawings include numerous exceptionally striking images.
David L. Wagner is Associate Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut. He is coauthor of two United States Forest Service guides, "Caterpillars of Eastern Forests" and "Geometroid Caterpillars of Northeastern" and "Appalachian Forests".
"A lusciously photographed book generally regarded as the most comprehensive field guide ever to caterpillars, as opposed to their better-documented adult forms--moths and butterflies... In the book, the fruit of a decade's research, Dr. Wagner ... argues passionately that creeping things can be every bit as mesmerizing and transporting as those that flit and dart in the air."--Andy Newman, New York Times "This is a wonderful field guide for those interested in studying the fascinating world of caterpillars in the backyard, parks, woods and fields around us."--Robert E. Hoopes, Wildlife Activist "David Wagner has produced a user-friendly field guide that goes well beyond anything else available."--The Quarterly Review of Biology "As a teacher of the university courses in insect biology and classification, I will use this book heavily; yet it is attractive and simply written enough to be much more widely appealing for children, teachers, and indeed anyone with interest in naturally history. David Wagner is to be congratulated for communicating his knowledge of the Lepidoptera so clearly and appealingly to the rest of us."--J.B. Whitfield, Annals of the Entomological Society of America "In general, the images of caterpillars and adults in this book are superb, the layout is attractive and easy to use, and the small-size format allows it to slip easily into a backpack for use in the field. I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in Lepidoptera, but it should also find a place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in natural history, plant-insect interactions, or management of Lepidoptera pests (macros, anyway). It also will be very handy for anyone with inquisitive children (of any age) that pose that frequently asked question--What will it turn into?"--John W. Brown, Proceeds of the Entomological Society of Washington "This is a fine, easy-to-use book that is sure to be in the hands of everyone interested in exploring their own gardens or nearby vacant lots, written to be understood by middle-school students as well as professionals. Very highly recommended!"--Biology Digest
