About this book

During about 400 million years probably several million species of spiders inhabited all continents of the earth (probably more than 100,000 species live today, ca. 46,000 species have already been described). This volume focuses on the ancient spider fauna which existed in the Burmese amber forest (today: Myanmar) 1 million years ago in the Mid Cretaceous. The existence of questionable “missing links” of higher spider taxa and the reasons for numerous extinctions – even of numerous families – are discussed.

The remaining papers treat few extant spiders as well as spiders in Ethiopian and Baltic amber. Furthermore a pictured key to Mesozoic and extant arachnid orders is provided.
