About this book

Language: German

The present work deals with all wild species of mantids and locusts in Rheinland-Palatinate, Germany, on a broad basis, like no other group of insects from this state. The distribution of all species is described in detail and shown in maps. Height charts Phenograms and explanations on the biology, behaviour and threat level complement each species chapter.

The Red List of mantids and locusts of Rhineland-Palatinate is brought up to date. The faunal part is complemented by a detailed reappraisal of the history of research on these two insect orders and an overview of the finds of fossil grasshoppers in Rhineland-Palatinate.

The names of locusts in the dialects of Rhineland-Palatinate is listed, as the amazing importance of these animals in local art and culture. Did they even eat locusts in this area?

Summary in German:
Das vorliegende Werk behandelt alle in Rheinland-Pfalz wild lebenden Arten der Fang- und Heuschrecken auf einer breiten Basis, wie sie von keiner anderen Gruppe von Insekten aus diesem Bundesland vorliegt. Die Verbreitung aller Arten ist ausführlich beschrieben und in Karten dargestellt. Höhendiagramme, Phänogramme und Erläuterungen zur Biologie, zum Verhalten und zur Gefährdung ergänzen jedes Artkapitel.

Die Rote Liste der Fang- und Heuschrecken von Rheinland-Pfalz ist auf den aktuellen Stand gebracht. Ergänzt ist der faunistische Teil durch eine detaillierte Aufarbeitung der Erforschungsgeschichte dieser beiden Insektenordnungen und einen Überblick über die Funde von fossilen Heuschrecken in Rheinland-Pfalz.

Den Namen von Heuschrecken in den Mundarten von Rheinland-Pfalz wird auf die Spur gegangen, ebenso der erstaunlichen Bedeutung dieser Tiere in der hiesigen Kunst und Kultur. Hat man Heuschrecken hierzulande sogar gegessen?
