Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe by Klaas-Douwe B Dijkstra

£9.99

Product description

This superb identification guide to all the dragonflies and damselflies of Britain and Europe, presented in an accessible, easy-to-use format, is the essential companion for the new generation of dragonfly watchers. Written by a team of dragonfly experts from across Europe, co-ordinated by K-D Dijkstra, and illustrated by Richard Lewington, generally accepted to be Europe's foremost illustrator of insects. The guide covers all of Europe, from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean Basin, including western Turkey, Cyprus, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and the Azones, Canaries and Madeira. The comprehensive texts and innovative keys and identification tables of adults of all 160 species of Odonata include field characters, hand characters, variation, behaviour, range and status, habitat and flight season, together with newly-researched distribution maps. There is also a comprehensive introduction to studying and identifying dragonflies, and a country-by-country guide to where to find them throughout Europe and North Africa and Turkey.
Paperback published in 2006 by British Wildlife Publishing. Good condition, binding sound and pages, (320), clean and unmarked. The corners of the cover are very slightly bent, there is very slight creasing at the top and bottom of the spine, a small mark on the bottom edge of the front cover and the very edges of the top of the pages are ever so slightly creased. There is a previous price in pencil on the top right hand corner of the title page.
There are some very small surface scratch marks on the outer of the cover, but the book does not really appear to have been used.
