A comparative study of the proventricular structure in twenty Chinese Tettigoniidae (Orthoptera) species
TLDR
The length of each part of the alimentary canal and the inner structure of proventriculus were highly associated with feeding habits of Tettigoniidae species, whereas herbivorous species always had a longer foregut and a highly sclerotized proventriculi.
Application of insect songs in monitoring population density level of Locusta migratoria migratoria (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
TLDR
The results indicated that the calling songs of insects could be an effective character to distinguish population density level of locust plagues, and it could be potentially used as a green and environmental protection solution in monitoring the dynamics of locUST plagues and other acoustic agriculture pests.
Acoustic, genetic and morphological variations within the katydid Gampsocleis sedakovii (Orthoptera, Tettigonioidea)
TLDR
An analysis of the genetic, calling songs, and morphological variations within the species Gampsocleis sedakovii from Inner Mongolia, China provides evidence for insect acoustic signal divergence and the process of subspeciation.
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome and Song Evolution of the Monotypic Genus U. Tarbinsky, 1932 (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)
TLDR
Calling song analysis showed that at least two discrete steps of independent evolution occurred during the change from pure tone to broadband noise, and that the ancestor of existing Ensifera was more likely to have emitted pure-tone songs than broadband signals.
Micromorphological differentiation of left and right stridulatory apparatus in crickets (Orthoptera: Gryllidae).
TLDR
The result illustrated that the length of left and right stridulatory file and teeth length could be an effective character to distinguish species.
Association between Acoustic Signals and Body Color Dimorphism in a Katydid Gampsocleis sedakovii obscura (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)
TLDR
It is revealed that the acoustic variation with body color dimorphism could provide evidence for insect acoustic signal divergence and the process of subspeciation, even speciation.
