The aerodynamics of hovering insect flight.   Indeed, odonates have long been model organisms for ecological research, and form a highly promising taxon for future genomics focused research (e.g., Bybee et al., ; Córdoba‐Aguilar, ). Their role in global ecosystems is likely large, as odonates are common, large and remain predators throughout their life cycle (Askew, ).

There is currently no consensus about how dragonfly and damselfly families are related to one another. Like dinosaurs and birds, dragonflies and their evolution has broad reaching impacts on science. This phylogeny will provide a framework for discussing these organisms with the public, as well as give us an example of what the first animal on earth to fly might have looked like.

This book is a collection of nineteen chapters where summaries of major ecological and evolutionary questions have been asked and responded using dragonflies and damselflies as study subjects. Each chapter is written by a well. This lavishly illustrated book examines the distribution, ecology, conservation status, and biogeography of species of dragonflies in the southern plains of the United States, where twelve ecoregions converge.

The topics discussed, such as phenotypic variation and ecology, are applicable and of interest across the United States and much of north America, and will appeal to researchers and.

Dragonflies and damselflies: model organisms for ecological and evolutionary research. [Alex Córdoba-Aguilar;] -- This is a critical summary of the major advances in insect ecology and evolution, discussing the advantages of using dragonflies as model organisms for studies in such areas.

Odonates provide excellent model organisms for testing functional explanations of sexual size dimorphism (SSD) because of their wide variety of habitats, morphology, development, feeding behaviour, and mating strategies. This chapter discusses three major functional hypotheses of SSD and uses data on odonate species to describe their patterns of SSD.

Dragonflies and Damselflies of South Africa.Damselflies are insects of the suborder Zygoptera in the order are similar to dragonflies, which constitute the other odonatan suborder, Anisoptera, but are smaller, have slimmer bodies, and most species fold the wings along the body when at rest, unlike dragonflies which hold the wings flat and away from the ancient group, damselflies have existed since at least the Lower.Evolution is the process by which I approach research questions, although both ecology and ethology interest me greatly.

I am also organismally oriented, i.e., interested in whole organisms, and some of my research has been descriptive-observing species in nature and writing about what they were doing.
