About this book

Provides information on a vast spectrum of the Australian spider fauna and illustrates and describes over 150 species in detail. Many other species are mentioned and discussed and a thorough summary of spider morphology, biology and classification is also provided. All representative families are described in some detail and the numbers of each family are listed on Australian and world levels. Most of the spiders illustrated are photographed alive in their natural habitat and the illustrations and descriptions make it easy for the layperson to identify many common spiders.
