About this book

First guide to the dragonflies of Borneo, which has one of the richest and most exciting dragonfly faunas in the world. To date 275 named species are recorded, and many more are yet to be discovered. Over 40% of species are endemic, making it the most distinctive sub-region of Sundaland. Includes photographs and half-wing coloured drawings. About 60% of known species are shown, including almost all the distinctive and common species likely to be encountered by a casual visitor. Particular attention is given to the identification of the common but difficult medium-sized red dragonflies of which there are several. Discusses structure and general biology, ecology and conservation, faunistics and biogeography and collecting techniques and photography. Includes a complete and up to date checklist, illustrated keys to families of adults, and illustrations of main larval forms.
