About this book

This booklet supplements Dig a Pond for Dragonflies, which deals mainly with the construction of garden ponds.

First, we outline what all dragonflies require. If these requirements can be provided in any particular habitat, the species dependent upon it may colonize it. It is very important to be aware of the general requirements of dragonflies because their requirements provide the basis for practical measures that have to be taken. Second, we outline the particular problems associated with managing each type of habitat and suggest ways of solving them. Third, we summarise the distribution and habitats of all the dragonflies still breeding in the British Isles so that you can predict which species you can expect to have in a well managed example of each habitat in a particular region. This section includes notes on the special requirements of rarer species.
