My name is Jonathan and im from Quebec, in Canada

I have a book in french that im sure it will be very very useful for you !!
This book concerne mostly lepidoptera of Europe. The subject of the book is
precisly the public attitude towards lepidoptera and their habitat and also
about history of lepidoptera.

The title is "Sauvon les papillons" which mean "Save the butterflies". This
is a french edition of a  book publied in 1987 by Rudi HOLZDERGER, Joseph

The french version is :

LUQUET Gérard-Christian, 1988, "Sauvons les papillons", Edition Broquet

I don't know if there is an english version of this book

Also, i study the lepidoptera fauna of my area, in Quebec, since many years
and i can tell you about the people attitude towards lepidoptera here.

If you have any questions feel free to ask
