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 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 are provided. Includes a bibliography and appendices covering such subjects as organizations and photography.
