Join us on July 16th at 2pm EST for our next Google+ Hangout on Air as we chat about the new ROM Field Guide to Butterflies of Ontario!
This is the very first field guide on the butterflies of Ontario. It highlights the diversity of life by featuring a staggering 167 species of butterflies known to occur in
Ontario. The ROM Field Guide to Butterflies of Ontario includes descriptive species accounts, flight season phenograms, and striking field photography of adults
Using range maps based on hundreds of thousands of historical records, and what we believe to be a first for a field guide: computer-modelled predictive distributions, this book illuminates the complete life history of these butterflies. The field guide’s easy-to-access approach, comprehensive coverage, and beautiful design make it an essential guide for both amateur naturalists and professional lepidopterists. Renowned lepidopterists and authors Peter W. Hall and Colin D. Jones team up with the ROM’s Antonia Guidotti (co-author of Butterflies of Toronto) and Brad Hubley (co-author of Spiders of Toronto) for this in-depth, user-friendly field guide Butterflies of Ontario. We'll hangout with Antonia and Brad, tune in and ask them questions LIVE! You can also ask questions through Twitter by following @ROMBiodiversity and tagging your questions with #AskROM
