About this book

Language: English

The research of the spider fauna of Slovenia dates back to the very beginning of binomial nomenclature, but the species records have never been summarized in a single work. In this contribution Rok Kostanjšek and Matjaž Kuntner fill the void in cataloguing central and southern European spider faunas by providing a critical review of published spider records in Slovenia. The new national checklist currently comprises 738 spider species, and will be regularly updated online (see Araneae Sloveniae at http://www.bioportal.si/katalog/araneae.php). This comprehensive volume will also facilitate more detailed regional araneological research and may help guide conservation decisions.
