Manaaki Whenua Press, Quarto, paperback, colour photographs, text illustrations.
A taxonomic and ecological handbook based on light-trapping studies in Canterbury. Line drawings, colour plates and a glossary assist the reader to understand morphological terms. Taxonomic keys complement a range of scanning and networking features to locate species of immediate interest in the fewest possible steps. Distribution ranges and known larval foods are defined, and statistically robust selections of light-trapping data are used to clarify species abundances, flight phenologies, altitudinal distributions and faunal biodiversity.
