Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beaton's beautifully illustrated and authoritative book treats just the southeastern Odonata, but I would recommend it to dragonfly enthusiasts anywhere as a fine reference for this group of insects. Rich in information with a superb collection of photos, it belongs on every naturalist's bookshelf."--Dennis Paulson, author of Dragonflies of Washington


"Dragonfly enthusiasts rejoice! With stunning photographs and a clear, concise text, Beaton has beautifully filled a large void in the burgeoning literature on these fascinating creatures. Dragonflies and Damselflies of Georgia and the Southeast sets a high standard and is a must-have guide for naturalists throughout the Southeast and beyond."--Blair Nikula, co-author of Stokes' Beginner's Guide to Dragonflies and Damselflies


"This book admirably covers the diverse dragonfly and damselfly fauna of the largest eastern state. Georgia's varied topography means that the book encompasses species of southern coastal habitats as well as those of the northern mountains. With its hundreds of beautiful photographs, thorough introductory chapters, illustrated key of families, and identification tips for the genus groups within each family, it will give readers their money's worth! With the guide to dragonfly and damselfly watching sites included, this book is likely to make Georgia a prime destination for watchers of these wonderful animals. In fact, it makes me want to make a tour of Georgia again myself."--Sidney Dunkle, author of Dragonflies through Binoculars


"New regional odonate guides are appearing at a pace that's becoming difficult to keep up with. Latest, and one of the best, is this impressive work by Beaton, Georgia's leading odonatist. . . . A profusion of color photos, clear, succinct text, and a colorful, appealing design combine to make this guide both very attractive and eminently useful. . . . This is an excellent and superbly produced field guide . . . the wonderful photos alone make it a highly recommended purchase."--Ode News


"[W]ell laid out and aesthetically pleasing. . . . The photographs are excellent and reproduced at a size that will really make them useful to the reader. . . Beaton and the University of Georgia Press are to be applauded for producing such a beautiful and well organized field guide. . . . I encourage everyone who lives or plans on visiting the southeastern United States to be sure and pick this gem up."--Argia: Journal of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas


"This is the kind of book that could very well spin someone into a new hobby, but for sure it will at least help nature lovers learn more about and more deeply appreciate those mysterious, little species of odonata commonly called 'dragonflies' and 'damselflies.'"--Fayette Daily News


"Beaton's new book, published by the University of Georgia Press, fills a vital niche—the need for an easy-to-use guide for damselflies and dragonflies occurring in the state."--Charles Seabrook, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution


"Covering more than150 species of Odonates found in Georgia, this beautifully illustrated guide will probably spend most of its life in your pack rather than on your bookshelf."--Southeastern Naturalist

This is a wonderful field guide covering the dragonflies and damselflies of Georgia but useful for anyone in the southeast.

Finally a southeastern regional field guide to the odonata. This is a wonderful field guide covering the dragonflies and damselflies of Georgia but useful for anyone in the southeast. Large pictures showing color and sexual variations, range maps, flight time charts as well as text descriptions for identifications are all easy to access and read for all species. This is truly an asset to those interested in dragonflies and damselflies.

An excellent pictorial treatment of the dragonflies and damselflies of the southeastern U.S. The photographs of each species is excellent. Every Odonata enthusiast needs this book in their library.

Great guide on odanates. Great photos of both male and female odes laid out well. Photos at times give dorsal and lateral views. Bulky for the field though, but stick it in a backpack and it works. Bought this for a trip to the south, but its not just for the south, I'm in New York and it has plenty of species seen here. Worth the money, very informative.

This book sets new standards for odonate field guides. In addition to covering the Southeast this book is also useful for people living in the mid-atlantic states. Photographs are excellant.

Everything I wanted is in this book: beautiful photos, identification tips, larva information, possible locations, flight dates, and much more.

If you have even the slightest interest in odonates, you should buy this reference.

I have recently purchased this book and I am extremely happy with it. It contains a great deal of useful information and I actually found the quick key inside useful. I admit that am not very familiar with odonates, but this book has helped me i.d. a good portion of the dragonflies I have in my collection and has really encouraged me to pay more attention to them on my outdoor excursions.
Highly recommend this guide!

Format: Paperback
Even though I am located in central Florida, I found the book to be extremely helpful. We have many of the same odonates here in Florida. Only a few of our species are not covered in the book and these are primarily South Florida species. The pictures are large and vivid which is very important in IDing dragonflies. Information is also included on flight seasons, range, similar species, habitat and behavior all of which are helpful in locating and identifying these little critters. Also, this is the only recent book covering the southeast that includes damselflies, a real plus.
