Dragonflies and damselflies (Odonata) have always had a special place in human imagination. Dragonflies of Our Parks and Gardens provides an overview of studies of dragonflies done in Singapore, where there are now thought to be 124 species, which is followed by an illustrated chapter on the anatomy, physiology and ecological roles of dragonflies. A section is given to discussion of each of six public parks and the nature reserves in Singapore and their roles as home for dragonflies. Dragonfly conservation pre-requisites, the need for public partnership, the ongoing National Parks Dragonfly Project, and how individuals can foster dragonflies are all discussed in this stimulating and colourful book. With glossary, distribution, sketchmap, checklist for six public parks, and reading list. A fold-out identification guide is tucked in a pocket inside the back cover.
