What is it about?

The article is the opening of a special issue of Freshwater Science on the use of dragonflies and damselflies in "applied ecology" - that branch of science that seeks to solve problems in the environment using biological systems. We describe a range of areas in which good progress has been made, and then define a set of gaps that subsequent research should aim to fill.

Why is it important?

The article frames a set of following articles which describe specific examples of the use of dragonflies and damselflies in applied ecology, highlighting the common themes.
