Description - The Tettigonidae of Australia by D. C. F. Rentz
This third volume in the Tettigonidae of Australia series will assist with identification and study of this important genus. As with the other groups covered in the first two volumes of the series, specialised collecting techniques, and the rearing of immature specimens, have yielded many more specles than would otherwise have been recorded using only normal collecting techniques. The work accounts for four subfamilles, two of which, the Tympanophorinae and Microtettigoniinae, are endernic to Australia. Each of these endernic subfamilies is represented by a single genus containing several species. Features: * New species descriptions * Coverage of biology and ecology * Conservation issues and lists of endangered species * Formulae for the Orthoptera Food Mix, Pampels Fixative and Orthoptera Stuffing Powder Tettigonidae of Australia Volume 3 will be a valuable resource for orthoptera researchers and academics, general entomologists, as well as those with an interest in the ecology and conservation issues related to grasshoppers.
