The Grasshoppers of New Zealand

Their Taxonomy and Distribution

R S Bigelow,

University of Canterbury, Christchurch, 1967.

“New Zealands's grasshoppers show the evolutionary effects of he Ice Age very clearly. The mountains resemble an archipelago of islands, with different grasshoppers isolated in each range and on either side of each major river valley. Situations of this kind have been rich sources of information on evolutionary rates and processes, and New Zealand's grasshoppers offer a promising field for the continuation of such research.”
