Saga rhodiensis se révèle très proche de S. natoliae et ces deux taxons s’acceptent mutuellement pour la copulation. En outre, ils constituent, avec S. hellenica, un groupe assez homogène au niveau chromosomique. Sur le plan morphologique S. hellenica se distingue aisément des deux autres espèces, et aucun accouplement croisé n’a pu aboutir dans no...

The Biodiversity Conservation Lab is engaged to the conservation of Orthoptera fauna of Greece. It is a long-standing project, involving self-funded research and several grants. The project goals are: (a) Generate knowledge on the distribution, population size, ecology and conservation status of important Greek Orthoptera species, as well as on the orthopteran communities (diversity patterns and ecological structure). (b) Record the pressures and human activities that threaten the survival of the species. (c) Suggest conservation measures for long-term maintenance of threatened and endemic Greek Orthoptera species. (d) Knowledge transfer by providing information and databases to central authorities and the Management Agencies of Natura 2000 network for the Orthoptera conservation (e) Foster science-based conservation decisions and policies for the benefit of Orthoptera fauna. (f) Raise public awareness of Orthoptera species conservation in Greece.
