Forlagets egne opplysninger
Saltatoria are wellknown insects and characteristic animals for the summer and early autumn. The north European species are not colourful like the butterflies or elegant flyers as the dragonflies, but their song fascinates us, and for many people the grashopper song is a part of the summer in the same way, as the bird song or the quacking of the frogs are in the spring. De danske græshopper is a beautiful and richly illustrated book, which in text and illustations comprehensively treats the 32 species of grasshoppers known to occur in Denmark with informations about how to recognise each species, their habitats, biology, behaviour and distribution. Further strong emphasis has been put on a comprehensive and detailed interpretation of the songs of each species – among other by the help of a large number of song diagrams. The book has very beautiful colour photographs depicting all species, and on the accompanying CD there are 49 sound recordings of the songs of all Danish grasshoppers. De danske græshopper is aimed for both amateur and professional entomologists as well as for readers with a general interest in nature. Many readers will know the author for his very well reviewed and similarly beautifully illustrated De danske guldsmede.
