Bioacoustics and systematics of Mecopoda (and related forms) from South East Asia and adjacent areas (Orthoptera, Tettigonioidea, Mecopodinae) including some chromosome data.
TLDR
The results show that South East Asia harbours a large and certainly not yet fully explored number of Mecopoda species which are most easily and clearly identified by song.
Studies in Australian Tettigoniidae: The Mecopodine Katydids Part 2 (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae; Mecopodinae; Sexavaini) Queensland Palm Katydid
TLDR
Two tribes of Mecopodini and Sexavaini are represented in Australia and both are confined to the tropics, with one species apparently facultatively parthenogenetic, the Queensland Palm Katydid.
A Rapid Assessment Survey of Katydids and Relatives of the Muller Range (Insecta: Orthoptera: Ensifera)
TLDR
It is confirmed that the katydid fauna of Papua New Guinea is exceptionally rich, yet still virtually unknown, and that habitat loss is the primary threat to the biota of the island.
Some parasites of Segestes decoratus Redtenbacher (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae) and their possible use in the biological control of tettigoniid pests of coconuts in Papua New Guinea
TLDR
It was concluded that S. dallatorreanum contributed to the control of Segeste decoratus in areas with an evenly distributed rainfall and that the parasite had potential as a biological control agent in areas where it is not endemic against pest species of Sexava, Segestes and Segestidea.
Staple crops in subsistence agriculture
Research on subsistence agriculture, staple crops and pests of staple crops have generally been neglected by researchers in New Guinea. This could also apply to many other tropical countries. Byrne
