Ninety percent of New Zealand's insects are unique. Many of these little-known creatures play an important part in our ecology. This book is both a field guide and a gallery, displaying the variety and beauty of an often-overlooked side of New Zealand’s wildlife. Ideal for children, trampers, mountaineers and conservation workers. Packed with over 650 colour photographs it covers native and introduced insects of the home, garden and farm, forest, mountains, streams and lakes. Includes common and rare butterflies, brightly coloured day-flying moths, spectacular weta, alpine grasshoppers, cicadas, plus much more. Andrew Crowe has written over 30 nature books covering seashells, insects, birds and other animals and plants. He is eight times a finalist and twice a winner of New Zealand book awards.
