The Grasshoppers of Greece is the first field guide for the identification of the various grasshoppers and crickets of Greece. They are a very interesting and often underexposed insect group. From small crickets that live in ants' nests, ancient looking stone hoppers and colorful bright saber grasshoppers (Poecilimon). The impressive predatory saber grasshoppers of the Saga family is of course not forgotten in The Grasshoppers of Greece. A total of 379 species in Greece are distinguished, of which 139 are endemic. This handy field guide includes:
- Identification keys for rapid determination,
- With these keys you can identify certain groups to species level and to genus level for other groups
- No less than 1864 color photographs.
In the guide you will find an extensive section with descriptions of all sexes. In the last part there are oscillograms for most types of singing and distribution cards of all kinds in this Mediterranean country.
This book has been produced on the basis of more than 17,500 records. In the last decades, hard work has been done on updating distribution cards and several new species have been discovered that have remained unnoticed even by science.
The Grasshoppers of Greece is a fantastic craft for anyone with a penchant for Greek nature and this remarkable species of insect.
