Series: Caribbean Pocket Natural History. I used this book together with Raffaele's 'Birds of the West Indies' on a Caribbean cruise through the Bahamas and down to Sint Maarten recently.

Series: Caribbean Pocket Natural History. Paperback: 162 pages. I plan on giving it (and others) to a young enthusiastic boy on north Andros who, before my visit, had never seen a photo or illustration of a local bird in a book. We had just looked at a Strip-headed Tanager in his back yard then I showed him a photo in a book and he was thrilled. Hopefully I will trigger his interest in the natural flora and fauna.

The era of piracy in the Caribbean began in the 1500s and phased out in the 1830s after the navies of the nations of Western Europe and North America with colonies in the Caribbean began combating pirates

The era of piracy in the Caribbean began in the 1500s and phased out in the 1830s after the navies of the nations of Western Europe and North America with colonies in the Caribbean began combating pirates. The period during which pirates were most successful was from the 1660s to 1730s. Piracy flourished in the Caribbean because of the existence of pirate seaports such as Port Royal in Jamaica, Tortuga in Haiti, and Nassau in the Bahamas.

The history of the Caribbean reveals the significant role the region played in the colonial struggles of the European powers since the 15th century. In 1492, Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean and claimed the region for Spain. The First Spanish settlements were established in the Caribbean starting in 1493.

If you are looking for a field guide for insects in the Caribbean, this isn't it. As the title suggests, the largest section in the book, 27 pages out of 83, is devoted to butterflies. This is the strongest section of the book. In addition to a photo, the descriptions give limited information about the regional distribution of each species.

In dealing with the remainder of the insect orders, the author neglects geography almost completely. The orders of insects that are found in the eastern Caribbean are presented, along with a description of some of the important characteristics (anatomical and behavioral) of each group. The descriptions are very general, and would be equally apt for a book focusing on any geographical area or none at all. There is no information regarding issues such as regional species diversity or which islands the described groups are found on. Despite the title, it's really more like the first day's lecture from entomology 101 than a work that explores insects from a regional perspective. The information is readily available elsewhere.

Butterflies and Other Insects of the Eastern Caribbean is extensively illustrated with attractive photographs. Unfortunately, the photos do not include any locality data or other region-specific information.
