Sites mown in May or twice a year (M, MS) had significantly shorter vegetation in June than sites mown in September (S) or abandoned ones (C) (Mann-Whitney test: [U.sub.MS] =0, p=0.03; [U.sub.MS-S] =0, p=0.03; [U.sub.M-C]=1, p=0.002; [U.sub.MS-C]=0, p=0.03; Fig.
Significantly lower grasshopper densities were recorded on abandoned patches (C) than on patches mown in May (M) ([U.sub.M-C]=29.5, p=0.015) or mown in September (S) ([U.sub.S-C]=21.5, p=0.011) (Fig.
4), species richness in June was non-significantly higher on patches mown in May and September (MS) and on the abandoned (C) ones than on patches mown in May (M) and mown in September (S).
Orthoptera density in June appeared higher on patches mown in May and September (MS) and mown in September (S) than on patches mown in May (M) or abandoned (C).
Shannon diversity in June was significantly higher on patches mown in May and September (MS) than on patches mown in May ([U.sub.MJn-MS-Jn] =1, p=0.03) (Fig.
5) in June was significantly higher on patches mown in May (M) than on patches mown in September (S) or abandoned (C) ([U.sub.MJn-SJn]=0, p=0.04; [U.sub.MJn-CJn]=1, p=0.02).
Graminicol species were found in grasslands mown in May (M), and abandoned ones.
Our study showed that adult orthopterans were present with lower density in abandoned areas than in areas which had been mown, regardless of when or how often the mowing took place.
This discrepancy was probably caused by the fact that mown patches were situated close to uncut refuges (Humbert et al.
This explains why areas mown using different regimes (M, S, MS) did not have different grasshopper assemblages.
Species that were found to be dominant in our study (Pseudochorthippus parallelus, Roeseliana roeselii) were also found most characteristic in humid, intensely mown meadows by other authors in nearby regions of Europe (Gardiner et al.
