Butterflies are among the most extensively studied insectsIan estimated @F percent of the
!orld<s species have scientific names. As a 7()&%A$%)7%% they are perhaps the best group of insects for
examining patterns of terrestrial biotic diversity and distribution. Butterflies also have a favorable
image !ith the general public. +ence% they are an excellent group for communicating information on
science and conservation issues such as diversity.
/erhaps the aspect of butterfly diversity that has received the most attention over the past
century is the &t3'B')C difference in species richness bet!een tropical and temperate regions.
'or example% in A?6B one biologist pointed out the diversity of butterflies in the Ama8on
!hen he mentioned that about 6FF species !ere found !ithin an hour<s !al% !hereas the total number
found on the British islands did not %D7%%4 DD% and the !hole of "urope supported only 43A. ,his early
comparison of tropical and temperate butterfly richness has been !ell confirmed.
A general theory of diversity !ould have to predict not only this difference bet!een temperate
and tropical 8ones% but also patterns !ithin each region% and ho! these patterns vary among different
animal and plant groups. +o!ever% for butterflies% variation of species richness !ithin temperate or
tropical regions% rather man bet!een them% is poorly understood. Indeed% comparisons of numbers of
species among the Ama8on basin% t3(p'768 A&'6% and Africa are still mostly >personal communication>
citations% even for vertebrates% In other !ords% unlie comparison bet!een temperate and tropical
areas% these patterns are still in the documentation phase.
In documenting geographical variation in butterfly diversity% some arbitrary% practical
decisions are made. Diversity% number of species% and species richness are used synonymouslyJ little is
no!n about the evenness of butterfly distribution. ,he He! &orld butterflies mae up the
preponderance of examples because they are the most familiar species. It is hoped that by focusing on
them% the errors C%)%36t%4 by imperfect and incomplete taxonomy !ill be minimi8ed.
