Research Notes
“I’ve written lots of books about butterflies, but it seems like I discover something new with each title. While researching this book, I learned a lot more about the amazing assortment of defenses caterpillars and butterflies have to protect themselves from enemies—from camouflage and eyespots to making a big stink. To make sure I had the most up-to-date information, I checked in with many of the scientists I’ve interviewed before and I also met a few new researchers along the way.”
