Handbook for all Odonata Sudan to Zimbabwe), product of 15 years of research, the first handbook as comprehensive and detailed the   tropical Odonata scrutinizes. The book may treat one third of Africa, Sudan and Somalia to Zambia and Mozambique, including the entire eastern half of the Congo Basin - about ten million square kilometers in total, an area comparable with China or the United States - but it it gives an overview of almost two-thirds of the species present on the continent. More than 500 species are illustrated with original drawings in 1120 and 320 species are found in the more than 360 color photos.
