About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

For the first time ever, this book presents easy-to-read descriptions of the morphology, habitat, behavior, larvae, and geographical distribution of all the 16 families occurring here, plus accounts on the natural history of more than 75 of their commonest species illustrated with outstanding color photos of both sexes, some of them pictured for the first time.

Also included is a user-friendly illustrated key to all the families of this region and up-to-date, per country lists of all the species. Given the wide geographical distribution of the species treated here, both scientists and amateurs working with odonates in North and South America will also find valuable, novel information in this book.
