Editorial Reviews

Review

"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." --The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, August 12, 2007, Charles Seabrook

"Covering more than 150 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." --Cathy Rees, Southeastern Naturalist

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 is an excellent field guide if you live in Georgia, but some species found in the Southeast but not in Georgia get excluded. It is a good backup to the other book I bought, Dragonflies and Damselflies of the East. Between the two I have been able to identify all the species I have photographed in the Virginia mountains, as well as some I could not previously identify from Florida. Anyone who spends time studying and photographing dragonflies and damselflies knows how hard it is sometimes to distinquish between the various species as well as between male and female, without actually collecting them and studying them with a magnifying glass or microscope. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

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.

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.

This particular book about dragonfly's is beautifully done. It is very informative and the illustrations are great. This is the 5th book that I have purchased about dragonfly's and I still got something new out of this book that was not covered in the other ones.
