Produced in conjunction with the UK Ladybird Survey, this popular fold-out chart to ladybird identification covers 26 of the 46 coccinellid species found in the British Isles.
Information on colour pattern, habitat and distribution and hints to aid identification are provided in a comprehensive table. There are also sections on the life-cycle and feeding relationships of ladybirds.
A special feature of the chart is the section on the Harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis, the most invasive ladybird species in the world. The Harlequin was originally introduced for bio-control throughout Europe, arrived in Britain in summer 2004 and is now spreading rapidly from the south-east.
This chart is part of the FSC`s range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it shower-proof and robust for use outdoors.
Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
