Catalog #9514, Moth-Catcher

2007, 192 pages, 17 color photos, 19 b/w photos. Provides an engaging account of author's development as a field scientist and of his groundingbreaking research in natural hybridization and speciation.  Based on observation and data collected primarily on Saturniid moths over a period of 30 years, it demonstrates how speciation occurs and makes it evident that evolution is an on-going process in the world around us. The setting is canyon and pass environments where wild silk moths and other organisms have adapted to new surroundings and where many have formed new species since the last Ice Age. The book also serves as a primer on the biogeography of the western U.S., and evolutionary biology.  Paperback; 5-1/4 x 7-1/2".
