Diversity of Butterflies of Pune city

Authors(3) :-Dr. Shakera Inamdar, Nilima Naikwadi, Dr Manoj Jadhav

Insects are the most fascinating creatures on the planet earth. They are specialized pollinators, hunters, parasites and predators forming basis for most of the terrestrial ecosystems. Among insects the butterflies are most charismatic ones. Their size ranges from the tiny jewels like blues, to the gorgeous birdwings with a wing-span as great as eight inches. Their glowing colours and delicate glittering movements catch and charm our eyes. No wonder then that they were willingly collected and studied by early naturalists.
