Well illustrated, large quarto, pp x, 417, pictorial laminated boards, a very good new copy in dustwrapper. Very heavy - extra postage may be required. [This book provides the user with the means to identify adults and nymphs of a little less than half the 750 known species of Australian grasshoppers in two families (Pyrgomorphidae and Acrididae) using equipment no more technical than a 10x hand lens. Easy-to-understand diagrams illustrate the morphological structures necessary to make determinations and technical terms are kept to a minimum. The introduction provides details on grasshopper habits, biology, habitats, collecting, rearing, preserving as well as an illustrated key to the major groups. The body comprises photographs of the grasshoppers in nature and characteristic structural features necessary for identification. Concise notes on habitats and related species, literature references when available, and a distribution map should provide a simple identification. Appendices contain a glossary, details on grasshopper photography and organisations one can contact for further study. A classification scheme will prove useful in arranging collections and understanding the relationships of species to one another. A bibliography lists all relevant literature references on Australian grasshoppers.]
