Biologie der Tiere Deutschlands

    Article metrics


    THE first portion contains two chapters, one dealing with the Phasmids (stick insects and their allies) and the second the Saltatoria (locusts, crickets, etc.). While other forms are mentioned in the first chapter, it is largely built round Carausius morosua. It includes a good account of the anatomy and histology, particularly of the sense organs, but all dealt with in correlation with function. In addition, the reproductive activities and the reactions of the animal are adequately discussed. The second chapter, which deals with the subject matter in the same manner, actually treats of a number of different species and so has a wider basis.
