This book provides the first comprehensive coverage of the dragonflies and damselflies of the Delmarva Peninsula. It includes color photographs of all 129 species known to occur in the region. Each species serves as a prompt for a short essay. The collection offers an eclectic introduction to the world of dragonflies and the people who study them. There is something here for everyone from the casual reader to the expert.
Hal White is professor of biochemistry and director of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Undergraduate Science Education Program at the University of Delaware. He is also an expert on the dragonflies of the northeastern United States.
