Plagues and Players: an Environmental and Scientific History of Australia's Southern Locusts
This thesis traces the changing course of locust and grasshopper
outbreaks in southern Australia and relates them to environmental
changes. It also examines the creation and use of scientific
knowledge about locusts over more than a century of research.
Together, these historical investigations show how the insects’
responses to environmental change influenced the course of
ecological and agricultural science.
