Nová zásadní kniha pro seriosní vážkaře – Exuvie evropských vážek

A new and truly essential book for european odonatologists - Fotogids Larvenhuidjes van Libellen by C. Brochard et al, KNNV Uitgeverij, 2012.

Flying Dragons by Ghislain Simard – letovky vážek

UPDATED Jan 11, 2010 Photobook Flying Dragons by Ghislain Simard, aka "dragonflies in flight".

Vážka na obálce učebnice Základy ekologie

Jinak knihu doporučuji, nejen proto, že mám na obálce fotku, či proto, že jsem ji s pomocí přátel a kolegů překládal, ale proto, že je to opravdu slušná “entry level” učebnice pro každého, kdo se chce dozvědět o ekologii trochu víc.
