This volume contains a complete set of distribution maps, and information on all the resident and more frequent immigration dragonflies in Britain and Ireland. It takes a look at the present and changing status of dragonfly species, provides insight into their distribution, gives descriptions to aid recognition, and summarizes aspects of behaviour and details of habitat. The information for the atlas comes from the Recording Scheme set up at the Biological Records Centre 25 years ago which, apart from deepening our understanding of dragonflies, has focused attention on the need for conservation measures. This book includes important and notable discoveries made in the course of the research, and provides a history of conservation in Britain and Ireland and the context and rationale for future efforts. It is a book which should be of interest not only to amateur naturalists and fieldworkers but also students and professional biologists.
