The book covers with beautiful photographs and brief descriptions of 105 species of dragonflies and damselflies, which is little over 80 percent of the island fauna. The detailed information on habitat, ecology and geographic distribution of each species makes the book very useful for professionals, amateurs and conservation managers. Regional field guides on different taxa, such as this is very important in creating awareness and local expertise for biodiversity conservation.
