Dragonflies at a Biogeographical Crossroads: The Odonata of Oklahoma and Complexities Beyond its Borders

Brenda D. Smith and Michael A. Patten From the Publisher's Website: This lavishly illustrated book examines the distribution, ecology, conservation status, and biogeography of 176 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 [...]

Predicting the distributions of regional endemic dragonflies using a combined model approach

Wade A. Boys, Adam M. Siepielski, Brenda D. Smith, Michael A. Patten, and Jason T. Bried Insect Conservation and Diversity doi: 10.1111/icad.12444 Climate warming is predicted to have large effects on insects, yet several data shortfalls, including distributional information, impede effective conservation strategies. Knowledge of species distributions is a critical component for assessing conservation need [...]

Breeding thresholds in opportunistic Odonata records

Michael A. Patten, Emily A. Hjalmarson, Brenda D. Smith-Patten, and Jason T. Bried Ecological Indicators 106(2019) DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolind.2019.105460 Numerous interacting abiotic and biotic factors shape an organism's spatial distribution, and these factors vary spatially and temporally, such that habitat used for breeding may differ from habitat used at other times of the life cycle. We [...]
