oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Notes on some common Karroo grasshoppers

Volume 4, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



This paper is a preliminary report on observations made in the Karroo during the period 1936-1940, during the course of an intensive study of the field ecology of the brown locust, undertaken by Mr. C. J. B. Smit and the writer. Since our attention was concentrated on Locustana pardalina (Walk), it was not possible to do more than to make incidental observations on the distribution and habits of other species of Acrididae.
