More on Sir David’s dragonfly -“restoring our sense of species”

As a follow-up to my post yesterday about the tributes to Sir David Attenborough, I thought I’d share this link to an open-access article just published in the journal Nature by KD Dijkstra, the dragonfly expert who named Acisoma attenboroughi from Madagascar:

Natural history: Restore our sense of species

It’s a nicely written and well-argued piece exploring the importance of appreciating and documenting the richness of species on this planet.  Well worth reading.
