About this book

Language: English

Please note: this book was originally announced with the title Biodiversity in the Heart of Borneo: Spiders of Brunei Darussalam

Written by the author of the highly popular field manual, A Guide to Common Singapore Spiders, this book on the spiders of Brunei is another user-friendly pictorial identification guide — in a more attractive format, and more lavishly illustrated with stunning colour images showcasing the astounding diversity of Southeast Asian spiders, particularly those in Brunei Darussalam and the rest of Borneo. Crafted in a language readily understood by beginners, it gives useful tips on how to recognise more than 250 species of spiders in the field, with succinct notes on their natural history and geographic distribution. It is an indispensable identification aid for students and teachers engaged in ecological and biodiversity studies, and an essential reference resource for weekend naturalists, macrophotography enthusiasts, eco-tourists and visiting scientists.
