Continental-Scale Assessment of Risk to the Australian Odonata from Climate Change
Australian Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) are vulnerable to the effects of climate change on the basis of exposure, sensitivity and pressure to disperse in the future and conservation efforts will need to focus on creating and preserving freshwater refugia. Expand
The Complete Field Guide to Dragonflies of Australia
This comprehensive guide to the Australian dragonfly fauna includes identification keys not only for adults but also for their larvae, commonly known as ‘mud eyes’ and often used as bait for freshwater fish. Expand
Australian Thaumaleidae (Insecta: Diptera)
The Thaumaleidae comprise a homogeneous family of small stoutly built flies with shiny yellow to black bodies, possibly mainly holarctic in distribution with less than a dozen species having been described previously from the southern hemisphere. Expand
The petaltail dragonflies (Odonata: Petaluridae): Mesozoic habitat specialists that survive to the modern day
The results suggest that New Zealand was close to the origin point in the Jurassic; one possibility is that Antarctica was at the centre of the petalurid distribution, based on Permian fossil evidence. Expand
Generic revision of Argiolestidae (Odonata), with four new genera
All 20 genera included in Argiolestidae are discussed, with type species, key characters of adults, distribution and habitat being given, and a diagnosis is presented for each genus. Expand
Critical species of Odonata in Australia
The conservation status of the Australian odonates is evaluated, the endangered species identified and the endemic species, species with unusual biology and species, not threatened yet, but maybe becoming critical in the future are discussed and listed. Expand
Dragonflies: climate canaries for river management
Aim Freshwater ecosystems are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Where long‐term datasets are available, shifts in species phenology, species distributions and community structureExpand
