About this book

This well illustrated guide includes all of the 34 families known to occur in Britain. Two identification keys are presented. The first uses morphological characters that are visible under low-power magnification; the second key, a tabular guide, includes a range of behavioural and ecological characters and should enable beginners to put a name to spiders in the field. Sections on spider morphology, biology, ecology and a glossary are also provided.
