This third volume in the series will assist with identification and study of this important genus. Specialised collecting techniques, and the rearing of immature specimens, have yielded many more species than would otherwise have been recorded using only normal collecting techniques. The work accounts for four subfamilies, two of which, the Tympanophorinae and Microtettigoniinae, are endemic to Australia. Each of these endemic subfamilies is represented by a single genus containing several species. Tettigonidae of Australia Volume 3 will be a valuable resource for orthoptera researchers and academics, general entomologists, as well as those with an interest in the ecology and conservation issues related to grasshoppers.

This latest volume in the acclaimed Flora of Australia series covers the subfamilies Arundinoideae, Danthonioideae, Aristidoideae, Micrairoideae and Chloridoideae. It describes a mixture of tropical and temperate grasses and includes a number of economically and environmentally important groups, such as: * Triodia - iconic spinifex grasses of Australia's arid areas that are an important major habitat for a variety of species * Wallaby grasses - attractive grasses with distinctive purple and green heads that are a major structural component of endangered south-eastern grasslands * Aristida (kerosene grasses and three-awns) - a large tribe of grasses whose characteristic three long bristles are problematic for the agricultural industry as they can contaminate fleece * Mitchell grasses - of great economic importance for the pastoral industry in Queensland * Couch grass - one of the lawn grasses we take for granted * Parramatta grasses - well-known weeds on the eastern seaboard * Arundo and Phragmites - the reeds along our waterways The volume includes native and naturalized species, treating five subfamilies, 55 genera and over 450 species. Many of the species treated are endemic to Australia. It features over 90 pages of illustrations as well as the traditional tightly written authoritative descriptions, identification keys, bibliographic information, and notes on ecology and distribution.
