Diversity and Distribution Records of Orthoptera (Insecta) in Nagarhole Tiger Reserve, Karnataka, India

Diversity and Distribution Records of Orthoptera (Insecta) in Nagarhole Tiger Reserve, Karnataka,... Arthropods are the foremost speciose and abundant macroscopical fauna on the earth and are quintessential members of terrestrial and non-marine aquatic systems. Total ecosystem services provided by insects embody pollination, decomposition and soil formation, biological management, and population regulation of other animals. Orthoptera is usually thought to be a larger group in most terrestrial environments. These insects feed on all kinds of herbs and sometimes cause economic harm. In this research, we investigated the diversity and distributional pattern of Orthoptera fauna in Nagarhole tiger reserve, Hunsur, Karnataka, India. Nagarhole tiger reserve is the important biodiversity hotspot in Karnataka. Totally 42 species belonging to 32 genera under 14 sub families and four families were recorded. Statistical tools PAST (Ver. v2.02) were employed to find the species diversity, richness and evenness were calculated.

Abstract

Arthropods are the foremost speciose and abundant macroscopical fauna on the earth and are quintessential members of terrestrial and non-marine aquatic systems. Total ecosystem services provided by insects embody pollination, decomposition and soil formation, biological management, and population regulation of other animals. Orthoptera is usually thought to be a larger group in most terrestrial environments. These insects feed on all kinds of herbs and sometimes cause economic harm. In this research, we investigated the diversity and distributional pattern of Orthoptera fauna in Nagarhole tiger reserve, Hunsur, Karnataka, India. Nagarhole tiger reserve is the important biodiversity hotspot in Karnataka. Totally 42 species belonging to 32 genera under 14 sub families and four families were recorded. Statistical tools PAST (Ver. v2.02) were employed to find the species diversity, richness and evenness were calculated. The habitus photographs are provided for the first time.
