Cicadas of Southern Africa (Suricata 7)


This guide describes the diversity of insects that are well known for their shrill song on hot summer days, but which are so skilfully concealed, that they are often only seen when disturbed, or after a careful and surreptitious search. This book is an identification aid to all those admirable specialists and dedicated amateur workers and volunteers in museums, those active in conservation, ecological impact studies, data-basing and other vital biodiversity and environmental studies. It can also be of assistance to teachers and lecturers in natural sciences, and the guides in our diverse national parks, nature reserves, botanical gardens and other conservation areas. All known species are listed with images, distribution maps, notes on their taxonomy, their distinguishing characters and appearance, and interesting or anecdotal field notes.
