Presents the results of a study on a formerly large metapopulation of the Scarce Swallowtail in South-Western Germany. In particular, habitat preferences of eggs and larval stages are quantified and the general decline and finally the extinction of the population is thoroughly documented.

It is a typical example of the effects of insufficient conservation measures, which mainly resulted from wrong prioritisation and from ignoring available knowledge. The book is addressed to conservationists, butterfly specialists, entomologists, and population ecologists.
