Product description

Review

It is so much more than a field guide and if you only have one book on dragonflies, then this is the one ... This is the third revision and the best yet. The authors have thoroughly revised the guide with new text and photographs, particularly evident in the earlier sections, which neatly combine high quality photographs with line drawings and full colour illustrations ... Stunning illustrations ... It is the must-have book.' --Dragonfly News --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
