Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Maltese Islands
11 in stock
This book describes each of the nineteen species of dragonflies and damselflies recorded in the Maltese Islands and each species is amply illustrated by photographs which, for the more common species, illustrate most or all the stages of their life cycles. The Maltese Islands lack most types of riparian habitats and as a result the number of species found locally is very small. This is compensated for by the high concentration of these insects at most water bodies. It is hoped that besides being of help and interest to nature lovers, it will also raise much needed awareness among the general public about biodiversity and nature conservation.
