This brand new illustrated field guide covers all 47 species of ladybird occurring in Britain and Ireland in a handy and easy-to-use format. Twenty-six species are colourful and conspicuous and easily recognised as ladybirds; the remaining species are more challenging, but the clear illustrations and up-to-date text in this guide will help to break down the identification barriers.

Each species account includes a description of field characters, similar species, life-cycle, food source, habitat and distribution. The guide also coves natural enemies and community interactions, as well as potential new arrivals. Combined with Richard Lewington's peerless artwork, this is a book to treasure.

About the Author

Professor Helen Roy combined research with teaching for 10 years before taking up a research position with the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, where she works extensively with national zoological schemes and societies. Her research focuses on the effects of environmental change on insect populations and communities, and she is particularly interested in the dynamics of invasive species and their effects on native biodiversity.

Ladybird ecology has much public appeal, and Helen has taken every opportunity to communicate her research to a wide audience; this has included natural history talks, school visits, 'bioblitz', popular science articles, podcasts and interviews with the media.
