New field guide:

Las Mariposas de Puerto Rico / Butterflies of Puerto Rico

This book is a first in that, with color plates and photographs, it
focuses on the diversity and natural history of the butterflies of
Puerto Rico and its adjacent islands. It employs the most up-to-date
scientific names; provides well-organized color plates that facilitate
the rapid identification of the 102 butterfly species; publishes for the
first time ever photographs of butterflies as they behave in the wild;
and catalogues the plants on which caterpillars feed.

This book aims to increase knowledge of butterflies and contribute to
their conservation.
