Some endangered orthopteroids
The IUCN Grasshopper Specialist Group (that also covers other orthopteroid insect orders such as stick insects and mantids) has contributed a number of pages to the IUCN Red List Species of the Day. For a list so far please visit the GSG Species of the Day page.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
