Evolution of dragonflies all life began from a common ancestor according to most scientists dragonflies, which belong to the all odonata share some similar characteristics in vision, life cycle, habitat, morphology flight, hunting prey and mating. The relationship between flight-muscle ratio (fmr flight-muscle mass/body mass) and aerial competitive ability was studied in plathemis lydia dragonflies these dragonflies approximately double their body mass during adult maturation this is due primarily to growth of flight muscle in males.

Odonata, the order to which dragonflies and damselflies belong, inspire a wide range of emotions ranging from fear to admiration they are a beneficial group of. Frons - the most prominent part of the face in anisopteran dragonflies lateral spine - spine on the side of anisopteran larvae pterostigma dragonfly anatomy below is the external anatomy of an adult dragonfly below is the external anatomy of a dragonfly larvae. Dragonfly: dragonfly, (suborder anisoptera), any of a group of roughly 3,000 species of aerial predatory insects most commonly found near freshwater habitats throughout most of the world damselflies (suborder zygoptera) are sometimes also called dragonflies in that both are odonates (order.
Morphology of dragonfly wings materials and methods we chose to study dragonfly (sympetrum vulgatum) wings the fore- and hindwing were digitized using the micro computed tomography (micro-ct) scanning method the forewing geometry is subsequently converted into a fem. External morphology of odonata odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) are dragonflies are strong fliers with fairly robust bodies and they have wings that are broad near the base at rest the wings are held out to the side damselflies tend to be less robust. Dragonflies among the most ancient and powerful of insects, dragonflies fascinate scientists and nonspecialists in part because they are large enough for the behavior of individual insects to be observed and interpreted indeed, so much useful information exists.
Dragonflies thrive in freshwater environments, and they live in temperate, tropical and terrestrial locations immature dragonflies are born in bodies of freshwater, and they require nutrients.

Morphology and anatomy juveniles nymphs are the juvenile stages of insects dragonfly nymphs (naiads) are aquatic, and acquire oxygen through gills. There is currently no consensus about how dragonfly and damselfly families are related to one another like dinosaurs and birds, dragonflies and their evolution has broad reaching impacts on science this phylogeny will provide a framework for discussing these organisms with the public, as well.
