A review of the Acridinae s. str. (Orthoptera: Acridoidea: Acrididae) of eastern Africa with taxonomic changes and description of new taxa
The Acridinae of eastern Africa are reviewed and recognized as comprising 42 core genera, belonging to five different tribes, together withXerophlaeobaandDorsthippus, which are unclassified but
Assemblages of orthopteroid insects along environmental gradients in central and southern Madagascar
TLDR
A significant association between habitat management and species rareness is found, where the number of rare species was higher in natural/unmanaged habitats than in natural and unmanaged habitats.
Integrative taxonomy reveals cryptic diversity in neotropical grasshoppers: taxonomy, phylogenetics, and evolution of the genus Sphenarium Charpentier, 1842 (Orthoptera: Pyrgomorphidae).
TLDR
The genus Sphenarium Charpentier is revised and redefine 9 species and 8 new species are described, suggesting a complex interplay between evolutionary forces during the evolution of these neotropical grasshoppers.
The acridoidea of Benin (Orthoptera): an annoted checklist
Abstract — Surveys were conducted from 1991 to 1994 and 2001 to 2005, to characterize grasshopper species occurring in Benin. The study covered 50 sites distributed throughout the different
Ecology and Population Dynamics of Solitary Red Locusts in Southern Madagascar
TLDR
This paper summarizes eight years of field study on the Red Locust, Nomadacris septemfasciata (Serville) in southwestern Madagascar and presents management recommendations for its control, which recommend concentrating surveys in the main breeding areas, better monitoring of local rainfall abundance and distribution, and better Monitoring of deforestation, which increases locust habitat.
Phase-Dependent Color Polyphenism in Field Populations of Red Locust Nymphs (Nomadacris septemfasciata Serv.) in Madagascar
Pigmentation of the Red locust hopper, Nomadacris septemfasciata Serv., was studied in natural conditions in Madagascar in relation to population density. More than one thousand hoppers were
A Comparative Study on the Morphology of Egg Pods , Egg Development and Hatching of Three Hieroglyphus Species ( Acrididae : Orthoperta )
The egg-pods of three grasshopper species i.e., Hieroglyphus perpolita (Uvarov), H. oryzivorus Carl and H. nigrorepletus I. Bolivar were studied under laboratory conditions during 2005-2006 from
A comparative study on the morphology of egg pods, egg development and hatching of three Hieroglyphus species (Acrididae: Orthoptera).
The egg-pods of three grasshopper species i.e., Hieroglyphus perpolita (Uvarov), H. oryzivorus Carl and H. nigrorepletus I. Bolivar were studied under laboratory conditions during 2005-2006 from
Large size as an antipredator defense in an insect
TLDR
An evolutionary scenario whereby a change in feeding behavior toward vertebrate-toxic plants served as an evolutionary breakthrough, setting in motion the subsequent evolution of increased chemical defense and large body size in lubbers is proposed.
The evolution of sexual size dimorphism: the interplay between natural and sexual selection
TLDR
The impact of sexual and natural selection on grasshopper body size and the evolution of SSD is reviewed and higher female-biased SSD might evolve as a result of polyandry in species where males transfer nutritional benefits in the ejaculate.
