MEDIA REVIEWS
Overall, this is an admirable work abounding in useful information and should be on the bookshelves of anyone interested in butterflies and their role in nature. -- Peter Hall * The Canadian Field-Naturalists, Vol. 116 *
This is an awesome book. The authors boldly took on the daunting task of producing a comprehensive treatment of the butterflies of British Columbia, and came up with an exceptionally fine result. -- Ian L. Jones * Discovery, Fall 2002 *
The best presented and designed of the big butterfly books of recent years, Butterflies of British Columbia will be a great boon for all western lepidopterists and butterfly enthusiasts. The content is superbly rendered: maps generous and accurate, art and photographic quality splendid, text literate and handsomely set. There are several innovative features, and the fact that the original taxonomy will inspire debate is a measure of the book's groundbreaking approach. A grand accomplishment overall, this keenly awaited book presents Guppy and Shepard's rich scholarship and immense field experience to elegant advantage. -- Robert Michael Pyle, Ph.D. author of The Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Butterflies, Handbook for Butterfly Watchers, The Butterflies of Cascadia, and Chasing Monarchs: Migrating with the Butterflies of Passage
