Conservation of butterflies in the Slovakian National Parks

The conservation of butterflies in the NE of Slovakia has hardly been considered before, though the conservation of butterflies along the entire southern part of Slovakia (the Pannonian region) has been considered recently by Kulfan (1992). The comments I am offering here axe based on a visit to all five of the National Parks in NE Slovakia at the end of May, beginning of June, 1993 during which I recorded 27 species (Feltwell 1994). My comments are of a general nature, of fundamental principles, and not always specific to a particular place. I was fortunate to have covered over 3.000 miles (4,828 km) during my weeks' stay, and was able to see at first hand many of the habitats that butterflies frequent.
