The dynamic layout of the pages allows a rapid and correct determination. This is done using a systematic key with designs on the left pages and using photos, on the right page, on which arrows indicate the peculiarities that distinguish the sexes. For each species, there is a detailed distribution map. This guide also contains general chapters on morphology, biology, ecology, habitats and approaches. Reading these pages will facilitate searching of grasshoppers, crickets and locusts on the ground. In total, there are more than 700 drawings and over 600 photographs.
