Three field trips were organised during and after the European Congress on Odonatology (ECOO) in Tyringe, Skåne, Sweden July 11-14 2016. The Mid Congress Field Trip was included in the symposium. The two Post Congress Field Trips were optional and started immediately after the symposium. The Mid Congress Field Trip went to the area around Blistorp in Skåne and lasted for a day. One of the Post Congress Field Trips went to the South Eastern Provinces 15-20/7.
The third trip went above the Arctic Circle and was arranged by Magnus Billqvist and Ola Elleström. That trip is the subject for this report. Download it below.
In Paul Hopkins own words: “Here is a quickly thrown together montage of the best Dragonflies and other odds and ends seen pre, mid and post ECOO.”
The Congress and the two field trips are over. We will soon return with pics and some reports from the field trips. Apart from that: see you in the Czech Republic in 2018!
We supported grants for 10 deserving individuals to the European Congress on Odonatology in Tyringe, Sweden this year.

The Book of Abstracts is here: everyone attending the congress will get a free copy. If you cannot wait or if you are not attending, you can download it as a pdf: Book of abstracts.
Send an e-mail to Magnus if you find any errors or if you like to correct something. We will then make an errata and hand it out at the congress.
