  Description:
    Abstract:
      The Outbreak Frequency map was created as part of "Spatial
      Analysis of Ecological Factors Related to Grasshopper
      (Orthoptera:Acrididae) Population Dynamics in Wyoming."
    Purpose:
      To represent how many times during 1944 - 1996 a location
      was infested with more than 9.6 grasshoppers/sq. yd.
