    Phylogeny. Grasshoppers belong to the suborder Caelifera. Although "grasshopper" is sometimes used as a common name for the suborder in general, some sources restrict it to the more "advanced" groups. They may be placed in the infraorder Acrididea and have been referred-to as "short-horned grasshoppers" in older texts to distinguish them from the also-obsolete term "long-horned grasshoppers. Grasshoppers range from a medium to large size; adult grasshoppers being 1- 7 cm in male species of grasshoppers have bright-hued wings which help attract their female counterparts. Their bright color also keeps predators away as it signals that they may taste foul.

    The types of rare entomology books available range widely, from beautifully illustrated works that include full color drawings of magnified insects, classificatory texts which systematically describe different species and families, and biological texts that describe the anatomy, physiology and life cycle of various insects.

This segment is comprised of several paragraphs of general insect information and five subsections: Insect Anatomy. Grasshoppers and locusts are both insects belonging to the family Acrididae. Locusts are grasshoppers, who under preferable environments form a swarm. Locust grasshoppers favor conditions that include thick growth of vegetation after a long period of zero vegetation.

When compared to a grasshopper, locusts have higher flight capabilities. "This volume captures the state-of-the-art in the study of insect-plant interactions, and marks the transformation of the field into evolutionary biology.
