Paul Opler's blog

Finally, in early August, 2009, all of the chores in preparation of our book Moths of Western North America were submitted to the editors at the University of California Press in Berkeley.
The book is now offically in production and is in the process of being copy-edited and put into pages. The book is anticipated to be published in May 2009 at a price of $75. Jerry and I both feel the book will be an overwhelming bargain at this price! More than 2000 species of western moths are discussed and illustrated. There will be 64 color plates, most of which were prepared by Jocelyn Gill in Ottawa, Canada. She is a master at preparing such masterpieces, and several other moth books have benefited from her expertise.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It's wonderful to finally have a guide to Western moths on the way -this fills a huge gap for those amateurs, like myself, interested in the natural history of the West, and I'm sure it will also be very useful for professional biologists and many other people. I can hardly imagine all of the work that must have gone into this book!
