Scared grasshoppers change soil chemistry

1 post in this topic

Grasshoppers who die frightened leave their mark in the Earth in a way that more mellow ones do not, US and Israeli researchers have discovered.

"Indeed this sounds a little bit weird," says lead author Dr Dror Hawlena in an audio interview posted on the journal Science's website.

Hawlena, a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, along with colleagues at Yale University devised a test to measure the legacy of grasshoppers who were scared by spiders.
