  • Discussions of habitats, zoogeography, and seasonality

  • An entire section devoted to the external anatomy of dragonflies and damselflies

About the Author:

John C. Abbott is Lecturer in the Section of Integrative Biology, Curator of the Brackenridge Field Laboratory Insect Collection, and Research Associate of the Texas Memorial Museum at the University of Texas, Austin.

Review:

"Recent interest in the amazing order of insects that includes dragonflies and damselflies has sparked numerous publications. This book, by odontologist John C. Abbott is certainly one of the best."--Choice

"Each section is full of information . . . with expertly drawn illustrations. The photos . . . are astonishing. . . . Dragonflies and Damselflies of Texas and the South-Central United States is a fine book that easily dispels the unfortunate myths that have arisen over this misunderstood group since 15th century Europe."--Biology Diges

"For the serious naturalist, however, this present book would seem to be the definitive guide to the region and I give it my strong recommendation!"--Guy Padfield, UK Butterflies
