About this book

Language: Catalan

This new field guide is dedicated to orthopterans: crickets and grasshoppers. These insects are present in very diverse habitats, from coastal dunes to alpine meadows, passing through steppe areas. Rather large in size, gregarious and with a very characteristic song, some of the species in Catalonia have a very restricted distribution that makes them endemic to specific, sometimes very small territories. This book collects around 147 species and describes their biology, habitat or distribution, as well as other aspects. Each entry also has a photograph that will help you identify it. The book is complemented by an introduction with information of general interest about this faunal group and several very useful visual keys. The text, clear and direct, and the detailed images make the guide suitable to a wide audience: from naturalists and specialized entomologists to simple nature enthusiasts.

Summary in Catalan:
Nova guia de camp de la col·lecció de natura “Maluquer”, dedicada als ortòpters –grills, saltamartins, someretes, llagostes...–. Aquests insectes són presents en hàbitats molt diversos, des de dunes costaneres fins a prats alpins, passant per zones estèpiques. De mida més aviat grossa, gregàries i de cant molt característic, algunes de les espècies del nostre país tenen una distribució molt restringida que les converteix en endèmiques de territoris determinats, de vegades molt petits. El volum recull al voltant de 147 espècies i ens en descriu la biologia, l’hàbitat o la distribució, així com altres aspectes. A cada fitxa hi trobem també una fotografia que ens ajudarà a la seva identificació. Complementa el llibre una introducció amb informació d’interès general sobre aquest grup faunístic i diverses claus visuals de gran utilitat. El text, clar i directe, i les imatges detallades permeten que la guia vagi dirigida a un ampli espectre de públic: des de naturalistes i entomòlegs especialitzats fins als simples aficionats a la natura.
