Long before the occurrence of dinosaurs, dragonflies were already the masters of the air. Located in the tropics, the island of Hainan has numerous rivers streams, lakes and swamps. The diverse freshwater habitats nurture more than 165 species of dragonflies. Among them, 22 are endemic to the island. A Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Hainan displays the species commonly found on the island and enables us to take a glimpse at the fascinating behaviour of such ancient insects.
