"NorthWest Africa grasshoppers and locusts" is a knowledge base which
aim is to make an updated assesment of the richness and diversity of
the Orthoptera, Caelifera, Acridomorpha group in North West Africa.
Two complementary approaches are proposed.
A "Key to species" menu allows with the aid of the Xper3 software to
identify specimens at the species level or at the genus level.
A "Species Index" menu provides an access to descriptive cards
with pictures, key-characters for identification and distribution maps.
Photographed specimens are deposited in the Museum national d'Histoire
naturelle in Paris and high definition images are available in databases
, tick the box : "Photographed only" to display them.
