Genre/Form: Classification: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Dirsh, V.M. Genus Schistocerca (Acridomorpha, Insecta). The Hague: W. Junk,   The locust of the biblical plagues (well-known and dreaded throughout the Middle East and Europe in ancient times) is the only Old World member of this genus, Schistocerca gregaria (Song, ).

North American species are much less prone to swarming behavior. This revision of the genus Schistocerca introduces some important changes in nomenclature. In view of the multiplicity of forms in the genus, the recognition of species and subspecies in it is somewhat complicated, and it has been suggested that all the species form one cline.

However, the author adopts more conventional classification. He recognises 22 undoubted species, three of them with Cited by: La détermination des Orthoptères de France 43 >> Schistocerca Song, H.

1 Acridiodea: 64 (Acridium (Schistocerca)). The desert locust is the sole representative of the genus Schistocerca found in the Eastern Hemisphere, whereas some 50 species occur in the Western Hemisphere (Dirsh ; Harvey ; Amedegnato ; Song ).This distribution pattern is enigmatic, given that, with one exception (the endemic Galapagos genus Halmenus), Schistocerca belongs to a subfamily of grasshoppers.

The biogeography of Schistocerca provides a unique scenario for inferring whether density-dependent phenotypic plasticity is an ancestral or a derived trait for the genus. The subfamily Cyrtacanthacridinae, to which Schistocerca belongs, contains 35 genera and is distributed throughout the Old World, with most of its diversity in Africa Only two genera occur in the New World.

Schistocerca gregaria and Locusta migratoria are two locust species that, according to the habitat they live in, adopt one of two life histories, that of the lonely individual (solitary phase) or they join other conspecifics to form swarms of.

• Both species change behavior, color, and morphology in response to crowding. • There are similarities and differences in reaction norms between the two species. • Our findings may be attributed to phylogenetic conservatism within the genus.

The Obscure Bird Grasshopper, Schistocerca obscura, might be better named the conspicuous bird grasshopper, for it is one of the larger and more eye-catching of its adult male can be millimeters in length, while females can reach a whopping millimeters ( inches).BASIC ECOLOGY: Schistocerca belongs to the grasshopper subfamily Cyrtacanthacridinae, which is generally known to favor arboreal habitat and prefer to feed on herbaceous plants rather than grassy plants (DirshUvarov ).

Sedentary Schistocerca species exhibit the similar trend, but moreover, there are indications that the host plant association plays a major role in the evolution of.An Schistocerca in uska genus han Schistocerca in nahilalakip ha familia nga Acrididae.
