Damselflies of Alberta by John Acorn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


With iridescent blues and greens, damselflies are some of the most beautiful flying insects as well as the most primitive. As members of the insect order Odonata they are related to Dragonflies but are classified in a separate suborder. These aquatic insects are a delight to the eye and a fascinating creature of study. In this book, naturalist John Acorn describes the 22 species native to the province. Exhaustively researched, yet written in an accessible style, the author's enthusiasm for these flying neon toothpicks is compelling. More than a field guide, this is a passionate investigation into one of nature's winged marvels of the wetlands.
