Dragonflies and South China rainforests

Keith Wilson
Monday, 21 Jan 2002
Keith Wilson will describe some of the spectacular dragonflies and creatures to be found in the best remaining examples of South China forests. In the field, he always carries a range of camera equipment; apart from his passion for photographing dragonflies, his forest images include bizarre moss eating tree crabs, whitefaced monkeys, tree snakes, cascade frogs and orchids. Keith Wilson has carried out most of the fieldwork on dragonflies in Hong Kong; he has revealed 40 more resident dragonfly species including nine species new to science. Seven of these are considered endemic to Hong Kong as they have not been found elsewhere. Keith has 21 years experience in his field and is a Senior Fisheries Officer with the Agriculture and Fisheries Department in Hong Kong.
