Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain & Europe: Edition 2

Klaas-Douwe B Dijkstra & Asmus Schröter, Illustrated by Richard Lewington, Foreword by Steve Brooks.

The first edition of the Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe was a ground-breaking identification guide that led to an increase in Odonata recording across Europe. This second edition includes fully revised regional guides and identification texts, updated distribution maps and conservation statuses, illustrated accounts for five species that have been discovered in the region since the first edition, updated checklists and taxonomy, new photos throughout, as well as an introduction to larvae identification. Each species is lavishly illustrated with artworks of males, females and variations, as well as close-ups of important characters.
