Wonderful Field Guide for California Odonata!
  • Much interesting general (and specific) information about Odonata.
  • Easy to use key to family. Detailed descriptions for all 108 known (in 2003) species in California.
  • Great illustrations dipicting overall features for each species. Many additional figures illustrating and/or comparing subtle details in and among species.
  • Sturdy binding & cover for field use.
Very clear and detailed...written at an intelligent level while accessible to a novice. A pleasure to read and a wonderful resource for a beginning student (like me) of Odonata in California. Highly recommended!
