About this book

A Manual for the Identification of the Dragonflies and Damselflies of New Guinea, Maluku, and the Solomon Islands is the first comprehensive guide to all 620 species of dragonflies of New Guinea and the neighbouring islands, which is home to ten percent of the world’s dragonfly fauna. Nearly half of the species are found nowhere else on Earth. The book includes 1275 illustrations and eight pages of color plates showing representative species and habitats, introductory sections on structure, habitat, history, collection and photography, as well as appendices discussing taxonomic questions and a full bibliography. Also included are illustrated keys to all taxa, and illustrations of larval forms where known.

Over the past ten years there has been a growing interest in the dragonflies of this remarkable part of the world. A Manual for the Identification of the Dragonflies and Damselflies of New Guinea, Maluku, and the Solomon Islands brings together all of the published research on this fauna from its origins in the 1800s to the present.
