Genetic, morphological, and dietary changes associated with novel habitat colonisation in the Canary Island endemic grasshopper Acrostira bellamyi
1. The large flightless grasshopper Acrostira bellamyi Uvarov, endemic to the island of La Gomera (Canary Islands), inhabits two different environments: the xeric euphorb shrubland, as is typical for
Behavioural and life history aspects of Calliptamus plebeius (Walker, 1870), an endemic grasshopper of the Canary Islands (Orthoptera: Acrididae, Calliptaminae)
Observations on the resting, feeding and mating behaviour of this insect are described, including, for the first time in this species, its acoustic behaviour (assumed of the E) whilst an attracting mechanism (C -pheromone?) was detected for theFirst time in Calliptaminae.
Genus Salsola: Its Benefits, Uses, Environmental Perspectives and Future Aspects - a Review
This paper focuses on the adaptive features of genus Salsola plants for their effective utilization in drought prone semi-arid to arid conditions and also to remediate degraded saline soils.
Grasshopper Mandibles Functional Morphology Adaptation to Food Plants (Orthoptera: Caelifera) from the Subtropical Forest Ecosystem, Central Taiwan
This article examined 20 species of grasshoppers, belonging to six families, in Guandaushi forest ecosystem by studying the food plants and the morphology of their mandible, among which, three
Diversity of grasshoppers (Caelifera) recorded on the banks of a Ramsar listed temporary salt lake in Algeria
The greatest abundance of grasshoppers from August to winter was recorded in the inner zone and in spring and early summer in the outer zones, revealing temporal and spatial variations in biodiversity and abundance of Grasshoppers.
A taxonomic revision and species delimitation of the genus Purpuraria Enderlein, 1929 (Orthoptera: Pamphagidae) using an integrative approach
An integrative revision of the endemic Canarian genus Purpuraria is performed, based on a large number of specimens and geographical sampling, and the diagnostic characters at the genus level are re-described.
On the food preferences and application of Dyar’s rule to different hopper instars of Acrida exaltata Walker (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
The Dyar’s rule was tested in the hoppers of acridid species, Acrida exaltata, using two size variables: head width and growth in nymphal instars, and it was found that Brassica oleracea var.


An Annotated List of the Orthoptera (sens. lat.) of the Canary Islands
New species, changes in nomenclature, and unconfirmed records are discussed, as are taxonomic problems ecountered in taxa of the acridid genera Sphingonotus and Acrotylus.
Influence of method of presentation on results of plant‐host preference tests with two species of grasshopper
Leaf material of two Piper spp. (Piperaceae) was presented to two different generalist herbivores (Orthoptera: Acrididae) to determine whether method of leaf presentation in preference trials affects
Effects of induced chemical changes on interpretation of feeding preference tests
Method of testing had a very significant effect on relative preferences of the beetles for corn, bean and squash and in some cases the level of statistical significance for a particular preference was affected by test methodology and in other cases the direction of preference was reversed altogether.
