From an exploration of dragonflies in the fossil record to a discussion of factors threatening many of today's species with extinction, we are shown a complex creature that begins life as a ferocious larva. Lurking among plants and debris, these aquatic larvae undergo a metamorphosis that transforms them into breathtaking adults that swoop after prey, fight rivals, hover like helicopters as they defend territory, and engage in elaborate courtship displays. Brooks explains how these insects evolved into not only masters of aerial predation but also migrators capable of traveling thousands of miles. Dragonflies is fully illustrated with color photographs that reveal the beauty and complex lives of these intriguing insects.

Steve Brooks is a research entomologist with The Natural History Museum, London.
