Dragonfly Monitoring Scheme
For some years, the British Dragonfly Society and the Dragonfly Recording Network have focussed attention on changes in dragonfly distribution and on identifying key sites for our rarest species. While distribution mapping can show graphically how species have spread in recent years, it is a blunt instrument for monitoring dragonfly populations. It is hoped that the British Dragonfly Monitoring Scheme will yield counts from a large number of sites to provide national population indices. It will also allow Britain to contribute to a Europe-wide dragonfly monitoring initiative.
