Ken Preston-Mafham (au) (ph). Grasshoppers, katydids, mantids, crickets, cockroaches & stick insects -- often referred to collectively as the orthopteriods -- include some of the most spectacularly colored insects of the world. The common names for these insects vary greatly around the world & so this book adopts clear simple usage & is written with a minimum of technical jargon. While there is sound, basic information on physiology, classification & life cycle, the main emphasis of the text is upon behavior. The 200+ full color photos were taken in a total of 24 countries. Even the most camouflaged of species were detected the hard way, by painstaking search in the tropical forests. Nothing is posed & the unique glimpses into orthopteriod life make this an important & timely book.
