Information about tropical and temperate species in functional and evolutionary contexts is skilfully integrated and facts and ideas are reviewed in the context of current biological thinking. Dragonflies: Behaviour and Ecology of Odonata includes more than 4000 bibliographical entries, and concludes with indexes to authors, taxa and subjects.
