If different intensities of grazing affect the densities of various species of grasshoppers on native fescue rangeland is determined to determine if changes in the vegetative cover should result in changes in grasshopper populations.
Utilization of Food Plants by the Migratory Grasshopper, Melanoplus Bilituratus (Walker) (Orthoptera: Acrididae), with Some Observations on the Nutritional Value of the Plants
TLDR
Grasshoppers were fed individually on either wheat, western wheat grass, or oats for 40 days after hatching, and the various criteria indicate that wheat is a good food; that oats is a poor food only because the grasshoppers do not eat enough; and that western Wheat grass is apoor food, possibly because of a deficiency in nutrients.
