Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Bristol Region book (£19.50)

  • And the fourth volume in the series is now available (July 2013) …
  • Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Bristol Region (2013) - Foreword by Philippa Forrester (£19.50 plus £2.50 P&P)

    This book presents the culmination of thousands of sightings by both professional ecologists, biologists and amateur naturalists, brought together by BRERC to enable the status of our species in the region to be assessed. Wonderful colour photographs accompany the distribution maps which reveal where the different species occur around Bristol, Bath and the surrounding countryside.

    Expert authors analyse the threats and opportunities to the dragonfly populations; they have been subject to great changes over the last two hundred years, and will no doubt continue to change into the future. For example, the restoration of boating on the Kennet & Avon Canal has reduced the numbers of dragonflies, but at the same time, new species such as the Small Red-eyed Damselfly are colonising our area.
