Singing Insects of North America
Title: Singing Insects of North America
Title abbreviated: SINA
Creator: Walker, Thomas J.; Moore, Thomas E.
Abstract: The primary goal of this Web site is to enable users to identify crickets, katydids, and cicadas from America north of Mexico. The males of most species in these groups make loud, persistent calls that attract sexually ready, conspecific females. Because the songs are loud and species specific they are usually an easy means of identifying the caller. They also facilitate field and laboratory studies of many sorts. Secondary goals are to attract amateur and professional biologists to the study of singing insects and to provide helpful information and access to literature. [Information of the supplier]
