Editorial Reviews

Tifjschrift voor Entomologie - Jan von Tol
This is a remarkable piece of work. Highly recommended.
Florida Entomologist - Dennis Paulson
This book easily lives up to the expectations promised by the dragonfly volume, including comprehensive, extremely well illustrated keys.
Entomologist's Monthly Magazine - Stephen J. Brooks
This book is essential for anyone with an interest in Odonata biodiversity and those involved in the conservation of New World wetlands, for which Odonata are important indicators of habitat quality. The authors are to be congratulated for producing a book that is certain to become the authoritative text on this group of insects for many years to come.
