Damselflies are some of the most beautiful flying insects as well as the most primitive and as members of the insect order Odonata they are related to dragonflies but are classified in a separate suborder. In this book, naturalist John Acorn describes the twenty-two species native to the province of Alberta.
This is an intensely personal book, written by someone who observes and appreciates all aspects of nature and loves to educate anyone who will pay attention. The book treats the 22 species of zygopterans in Alberta in great detail and is without question a scholarly treatise. But it's worth having a copy just because it's a good read - How many books have you seen in which some of the species are introduced by limericks? Enough said... - Dennis Paulson, University of Puget Sound, Faculty of Biology/Slater Museum of Natural History.
