Abstract

MORE is known about the biology of locusts than possibly any other insects. Our intense interest in the acrididine grasshoppers is due not to some peculiar trait of theirs but to their economic and ecological importance: they compete with mammalian grazers and with humans for grain crops in the world’s temperate grasslands. As Daniel Otte (1984) states: “The impact of most North American species cannot even be roughly estimated, for they have not been studied, but perennially they are rated among the worst insect pests.”
