Alabama Butterflies and Eastern Spiders:

Books and Photographs by Samford Faculty about Nature, Ecology, and the Natural World All Around Us

Exhibit: August 27 – October 4, 2010

Samford University Library hosts Alabama Butterflies and Eastern Spiders. The books and photographs are showcased by the main level grand staircase.

book jacket Alabama's ecology is exceptionally rich and diverse. Butterflies of Alabama, a book by coauthors W. Mike Howell (a Samford biology professor) and Vitaly Charny, provides detailed descriptions and photographs of Alabama butterflies, collected over a nine-year period. The book contains valuable introductory material on butterfly anatomy, life cycle, and taxonomy.

This book is a wonderfully readable and visually compelling account of a particularly beautiful aspect of Alabama's natural environment.
