Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate savanna
Altered habitat: pasture
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "The orchard-brome grass pasture consisted of those cultivated grasses recommended for seeding in this area"
Life forms: orthopterans
Sampling methods: no design, sweep nets
Sample size: 2614
Years: 1933 - 1939
Sampling comments: "Each year the collections were started during April... and were continued throughout the growing season... Semi-weekly collections were intended but occasionally rains interfered... collecting was done by means of a specially constructed, long-handled, square net, the mouth of which was one square foot in area. Twenty-five sweeps of this net in each plot, each sweep covering about three feet, constituted a collection"
