“This is an easy-to-use field guide to the grasshoppers of Florida. If you have ever wondered what that big critter is jumping around outside, this book is for you.”—Richard A. Redak, University of California, Riverside
This first field guide to the grasshoppers of Florida introduces one of the most obvious and important, though little appreciated, insect groups. It provides identification of the 70 species known to occur in Florida and may be used in other southeastern states where many of these grasshoppers are also found. The authors present the biology, behavior, ecological significance, and damage potential of grasshoppers and emphasize their interrelationship with Florida’s fauna. Straight-forward and detailed descriptions, color photos, line drawings, and distribution maps make it possible to identify each species with accuracy. 
John L. Capinera is professor and chair of the  Department of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida and is the author of more than 100 scientific
publications.  Clay W. Scherer is an
entomologist with Syngenta Crop Protection, Vero Beach, Florida. Jason M.
Squitier is an entomologist with the U.S. Army in Atlanta, Georgia.
