Effects of Climate Change and Various Grassland Management Practices on Grasshopper (Orthoptera) Assemblages

Figure 2

Canonical correlation analysis, which included the most significant habitat variables and relative frequency data of orthopteran species occurring in minimum 5 samples, shows that grassland management, rainfall in the period of June to September, rainfall in spring, and annual rainfall affect the organization of orthopteran assemblages. [black circle: thermophilic species (including moderately thermophilic species), black square: mesophilic species, black triangle: hygrophilic species (including moderately hygrophilic species); continuous line: effect of grassland management, dotted line: annual rainfall; broken line: rainfall of the interval from June to September; dots and dashes line: April rainfall; for abbreviations of the species see Table 2].
