About this book

First published 15 years ago, this is the only book in English to cover the entire European fauna, comprising 124 species of resident damselfly and dragonfly. All species are illustrated and in most cases both sexes as well as important variants are depicted, all enlarged. The author has made a few corrections to his original text, which covered 114 species of Odonata breeding in Europe, and has added a new Preface and an updating Supplement. New information is given on Nomenclature; Orthography; Thermoregulation; American species observed in Europe; Accidental introductions into Europe; Other species newly recognized in Europe; Species new to the British Isles; Expansion of recorded ranges within Europe; Other new distribution records; and Contraction of recorded ranges.
