The Seychelles islands are biogeographically interesting, with ancient affinities to Africa and Asia, recent colonizing species from the Indo-Pacific and modern introductions. Until recently, relatively little was known about the biodiversity of the islands. this has changed through the publication of a series of monographs on the Seychelles fauna, presenting the latest information on all the terrestrial and freshwater animals of the islands. In this current volume on the odonata, hemiptera, hymenoptera and other insects of the Seychelles islands, 15 expert scientists from nine different countries have provided contributions that cover all 954 species of these insect orders and other orders not covered in previous volumes (e.g. Protura, Collembola, Diplura, Microcoryphia, Zygentoma, Thysanoptera, Psocodea, Neuroptera, Siphonaptera and Trichoptera) recorded from the islands. Odonata, Hemiptera, Hymenoptera and Other Insects of the Seychelles Islands includes taxonomic keys, diagnostic illustrations and descriptions for many species, in addition to distribution records and assessments of species conservation status as defined by the International Union for the conservation of Nature (IUCN).
