Media reviews

"[...] 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."
