Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The monarch is the largest butterfly to be seen regularly in New Zealand gardens. This text covers aspects of the butterfly's life, including its life cycle, courtship, and enemies, which makes it a useful book for secondary school students of biology. The monarch is also a relatively easy butterfly to study, so the section in this book on growing garden plants for the monarch, and breeding them in captivity, makes it suited to anyone interested in practical entomology.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 70).
