Species-specific selection of host plants by grasshoppers from a Sand Hills grassland in Nebraska is documented by identifying fragments of plants from the foregut. Results from this study are compared with a similar study performed in a mixed-grass pasture near North Platte, Nebraska. On average, a larger number of plants was included in the diet of species at Arapaho Prairie. Differences in specific composition of diets were observed in some cases.
