Field Guide to larvae and exuviae of British Dragonflies
This publication combines for the first time the original Volume 1 on Dragonflies (2007) and Volume 2 on Damselflies (2009). Since the publication of these separate British Dragonfly Society (BDS) Field Guides, there has been increasing demand to combine them into a single book. In this volume, two new species, Dainty Damselfly Coenagrionscitulum and Southern Migrant Hawker Aeshnaaffinis, have been added. A new appendix for Willow Emerald Lestesviridis shows extra features on the exuvia and the scars left by ovipositing females. There have also been revisions to other text, but the overall format of this book matches the earlier field guides.In many ways, dragonflies are appearing to do well at the moment. Being an essentially tropical group of insects, many species are apparently responding favourably to increasing temperatures and spreading northwards in their range. The recent colonisation of eastern England by Willow Emerald from the continent and the re-appearance in Britain of Dainty Damselfly after a gap of over fifty years could be just two examples of this. On the other hand, some species are in decline and suffering from range contractions.In these times of rapid change, it is increasingly important for us to map species distribution and record important areas for dragonflies. It is particularly vital to know where species are breeding, so that these sites can be highlighted and protected. This book, with its concise text and superb photographs by Steve Cham, will enable anyone to find and identify breeding evidence with a little practice. For these reasons this new publication is an important resource for both professional ecologists and amateur enthusiasts alike.

The Insects. Structure and Function
The Insects has been the standard textbook in the field since the first edition published over forty years ago. Building on the strengths of Chapman''s original text, this long-awaited 5th edition has been revised and expanded by a team of eminent insect physiologists, bringing it fully up-to-date for the molecular era. The chapters retain the successful structure of the earlier editions, focusing on particular functional systems rather than taxonomic groups and making it easy for students to delve into topics without extensive knowledge of taxonomy. The focus is on form and function, bringing together basic anatomy and physiology and examining how these relate to behaviour. This, combined with nearly 600 clear illustrations, provides a comprehensive understanding of how insects work. Now also featuring a richly illustrated prologue by George McGavin, this is an essential text for students, researchers and applied entomologists alike.

Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates
The invertebrates that live in Britain''s rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands are endlessly fascinating and hugely important in the ecology of fresh waters. Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates provides an introduction to their great diversity and the means to identify the many different types, from flatworms to beetles. A series of easy-to-follow keys, along with notes on ecology and distribution, allow identification of the more commonly encountered freshwater invertebrates occuring in Britain and Ireland, while 460 line drawings illustrate whole animals and the features of importance in distinguishing different groups. Identification is typically to family level, and beyond where this is straightforward to do so, with a bibliography of other keys and guides for those who want to pursue identification further. With introductory notes on the classication of animals and the collection and preservation of specimens, as well as a detailed glossary, Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates is aimed at anyone interested in identifying freshwater invertebrate animals, from established naturalists and biologists to those new to the field. Written by staff from the Freshwater Biological Association, it is intended as a tribute to T.T. Macan, one of the ''founding fathers'' of freshwater biology.
