About this book

Language: German

This third German edition is based on the previous versions of this classical book, but has been revised to include the up-to date knowledge on spider biology. In contrast to many spider books on the market (mainly field guides and determination tools) which are dealing with natural history of spiders, the focus of Biologie der Spinnen lies on the biology of spiders. These aspects range from anatomy to physiology, from sensory organs to the central nervous system and behaviour, from locomotion to prey capture and ecology. Particular attention is given to spider silk and webs.

Summary in German:
Die vorliegende 3. deutsche Auflage orientiert sich an den früheren Auflagen, ist aber dem neuesten Wissensstand angepasst. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Spinnenbüchern, die sich meist mit der Systematik (Bestimmungsbücher) oder der Naturgeschichte der Spinnen befassen, geht es hier um die biologischen Aspekte. In 10 Kapiteln wird ein weiter Bogen gespannt von der Anatomie zur Physiologie, vom Bau der Sinnesorgane und des Gehirns zum Verhalten, von der Fortbewegung zu raffiniertem Beutefang und vom einfachen Spinnvermögen zum komplexen Netzbau.
