Abstract

Of the various species of grasshoppers occurring in rather extensive numbers year after year in the northwestern plains states, Melanoplus bivittatus is one of the most prevalent and destructive. It was thought that a study of the influence of different temperatures and relative humidities upon the reproductive potential of this species might reveal some information and that this information might be of some value in an attempt to forecast the abundance of this grasshopper in years following others in which the factors of temperature and relative humidity were known.
