ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty Spiders of North America: An Identification Manual

em Sex Ago 10, 2018 9:25 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 512uC8PTZCL._SX351_BO1,204,203,200_

The 2nd edition of this beautifully illustrated guide to the spiders of North America, north of Mexico, provides completely updated keys and information about this important part of North American fauna. This is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in spider diversity or identification. This updated edition provides more than 1,400 illustrations and keys to the genera in 71 spider families. Over 600 genera are included. Taxonomic changes since the publication of the 1st edition in 2005 are reflected in every chapter. The manual includes 76 chapters and a wealth of information including an introduction to spider morphology, natural history, collecting techniques and preservation methods; an overview of the current status and most recent developments in spider phylogeny and evolutionary history; a key to the families of spiders found in North America, north of Mexico; keys to the genera in each of these families; an etymological dictionary explaining the derivation of the names of spider genera and families; a well-illustrated glossary; a pronunciation guide to the names of common taxa; and a complete bibliography. This is the first completely revised version of the manual since its original publication in 2005. Note that this is not a photo-ID guide to spiders; it is intended to aid in accurate identification and to do this one must become familiar with some of the details of spider morphology/anatomy. To aid in this task, a guide to morphology used in classification is provided in the introduction. The information on spider biology and identification make this manual especially suitable for both amateur naturalists and professional arachnologists. With contributions by: Darrell Ubick, Pierre Paquin, Paula Cushing, Nadine Dupérré, Adalberto Santos, Bruce Cutler, Michael Draney, Daniel Mott, Matja Kuntner, Lara Lopardo, James Cokendolpher, H.

ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty Spider Behaviour: Flexibility and Versatility

em Sex Ago 10, 2018 9:34 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 51QWwHWswDL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_

Spiders are often underestimated as suitable behavioral models because of the general belief that due to their small brains their behavior is innate and mostly invariable. Challenging this assumption, this fascinating book shows that rather than having a limited behavioral repertoire, spiders show surprising cognitive abilities, changing their behavior to suit their situational needs. The team of authors unravels the considerable intra-specific as well as intra-individual variability and plasticity in different behaviors ranging from foraging and web building to communication and courtship. An introductory chapter on spider biology, systematics and evolution provides the reader with the necessary background information to understand the discussed behaviors and helps to place them into an evolutionary context. Highlighting an under-explored area of behavior, this book will provide new ideas for behavioral researchers and students unfamiliar with spiders as well as a valuable resource for those already working in this intriguing field.

ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty The Brown Recluse Spider

em Sex Ago 10, 2018 9:37 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 41bbc15tYBL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

The brown recluse is a fascinating spider very well adapted to dwelling in houses and other buildings. Because of this very quality and the ghastly reputation associated with the medical consequences of its bite, it has become infamous throughout North America. Although recluse spiders can cause serious skin injuries and, in very rare cases, death, the danger posed by this spider is often exaggerated as a result of arachnophobia and the misdiagnosis of non-spider-related conditions as brown recluse bites. These misdiagnoses often occur in areas of North America where the spider does not exist, making legitimate bites improbable. One of the greatest factors that keeps the myths alive is misidentification of common (and harmless) spiders as brown recluses. With this book, Richard S. Vetter hopes to educate readers regarding the biology of the spider and medical aspects of its bites, to reduce the incidence of misdiagnoses, and to quell misplaced anxiety.In The Brown Recluse Spider, Vetter covers topics such as taxonomy, identification, misidentification, life history characteristics and biology, medical aspects of envenomations, medical conditions misdiagnosed as brown recluse bites, other spider species of medical consideration (several of which have been wrongly implicated as threats to human health), and the psychology behind the entrenched reasons why people believe so deeply in the presence of the spider in the face of strong, contradictory information. Vetter also makes recommendations for control of the spider for households in areas where the spiders are found and describes other species of recluse spiders in North America. Although The Brown Recluse Spider was written for a general audience, it is also a valuable source of information for arachnologists and medical personnel.

ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty The Private Life of Spiders

em Sex Ago 10, 2018 9:39 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 51Vxqox06bL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_

With more than 100 different families and 40,000 individual species, spiders are among the most successful creatures on Earth. Highly adaptable, they live almost everywhere, from equatorial rainforest to Arctic tundra. And they come in a huge range of shapes and sizes, from the tiny Patu digua, measuring less than half a millimeter, to the immense bird-eating tarantula, which can reach a span of eleven inches. In The Private Life of Spiders, spider expert Paul Hillyard takes the reader on a fascinating and richly illustrated tour of the lives of some of the world's most remarkable spiders.

The Private Life of Spiders reveals the intriguing behaviors of these complex creatures, from their extraordinary web-spinning skills and hunting strategies to their courtship displays and devoted care for their young. The book also describes other surprising skills of some spiders, such as the ability to cross vast stretches of open water.

Written in an engaging style, The Private Life of Spiders also looks at why people are scared of spiders, explains why such fear is generally misplaced, and shows why more needs to be done to protect endangered spiders.

Features spiders from a vast range of habitats around the world
Includes more than 100 stunning color photographs that capture the beauty and diversity of spiders
Covers spider anatomy, behavior, reproduction, social organization, and hunting and web construction techniques

ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty Breeding the World's Largest Living Arachnid: Amblypygid (Whipspider) Biology, Natural History, and Captive Husbandry

em Sab Ago 11, 2018 7:07 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 51Hx5mqpFML._SX379_BO1,204,203,200_

What arachnologist worth his salt could forget the arachnid with a two-foot legspan? The Order Amblypygi not only contains world record species, but also some of the most improbable and unbelievable looking members of the Class Arachnida. Otherwise known as whipspiders, these creatures appear to have been formed in the deep recesses of a human nightmare, and yet are the only large arachnids that are entirely harmless to humans. Predatory whipspiders display advanced social behaviors and externally visible reproductive biology of immense complexity. This text presents cutting edge biological details, supporting Scanning Electron Micrographs, and unparalleled captive reproduction information with photographic documentation.

ARACHNIDS - BOOKS Empty Forgotten Order of the Vinegaroons: Whipscorpion Biology, Husbandry, and Natural History

em Sab Ago 11, 2018 7:27 pm
ARACHNIDS - BOOKS 519UtQBPuwL._SX379_BO1,204,203,200_

There is a large arachnid that eats scorpions and sprays acid. This amazing arthropod apex predator is the most significant arthropod predator in its range and yet few humans could answer a single question about it. Most people are not even aware that vinegaroons (or whipscorpions) exist. Although fearless monsters to other microfauna, and not so micro fauna, the whipscorpion is without venom and can hardly even pinch a human. These details-reproductive biology with representative photos of each stage discussed, morphological explanations including descriptive scanning electron micrographs, full husbandry explanations, select species accounts, and prey considerations-are presented here to bring light to every aspect of this heretofore forgotten arachnid order. This is the first book ever devoted to the order of the vinegaroons and the only full-length treatment of this order in the history of the written word. Never again should the vinegaroons be forgotten.
