New Dragonfly Book and African Training Opportunity
Klaas-Douwe B Dijkstra (Naturalis and Stellenbosch University) and colleague Viola Clausnitzer (Senckenberg Institute) have published “The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Eastern Africa: Handbook for all Odonata from Sudan to Zimbabwe.” This handbook provides an unprecedented resource for freshwater biodiversity conservation in Africa. The book is published by the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Belgium) with support from the Naturalis Biodiversity Center (The Netherlands), JRS, and research funding by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Germany).
