  • Grasshoppers and crickets. Farndon, John // Wild Animals;2003, p29 

    Grasshoppers are plant-eating insects related to crickets, locusts, and katydids. They belong to two main families, the short-horned and the long-horned. Some grasshoppers can leap more than 10 feet. A grasshopper's singing is called stridulation. Crickets chirrup faster the warmer it is. ...

    Katydids and crickets generate their characteristic calling sound by rubbing their wings together. The mechanisms of the rubbing force, however, have not been extensively studied. The change of mechanical force with external parameters (speed and applied load) in the stridulation process has not...
