Grasshopper sampling

First field work within the BIBS project finished

We finished the grasshopper sampling last week! More than 60 urban dry grasslands had been sampled during summer and we are now happy to have a first extensive dataset for the BIBS project. In all, we acoustically and visually assessed more than 4000 grasshopper individuals with 22 species – including some very interesting species such as Calliptamus italicus. We are looking forward to first functional diversity analyses in the next few weeks.

New faunistic paper
