A simple but detailed guide for beginners who want to increase their knowledge of the dragonflies of Europe. This book contains pictures and photographs of all European species with a stable population in our continent, with chapters on their anatomy, biology, behaviour, distribution and flight time; In addition, there is basic information about occasional species with only a few sightings. All in all, 143 species are described with over 600 photographs and data on their state of conservation.
"[...] When judging the present work it is impossible not to compare it with the book of Dijkstra and Lewington [...] the real strength of this book [...] is in photographs. These allow one to appreciate the jizz of the species and get some indication of behaviour to a far greater degree than is usually possible with artwork. [...] Whether readers would wish to purchase this work if they already possess Dijkstra & Lewington may depend a little on personal preference regarding illustration style, but the photographic format certainly has much to recommend it . The book is definitely a valuable contribution to the study of European dragonflies."
