This is a nice book 9 Aug. 2001
By Greg Rice - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is just a nice book. It has some fascinating information about the structure, biology, and life history of spiders. It has some very nice pictures, especially of jumping spiders which the authors seem to have a special affinity for. It is NOT a field guide, and it's not meant to be, it's a very nice introduction to the fascinating world of the spider.

Spiders of the World 2 Aug. 2001
By nelson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is geared to someone looking for information on the general habits of spiders. It has a great section on web building and habitats. This book does contains some pictures , but not for the purpose of classification of specific spiders.
Great 15 Feb. 2008
By M. R. Strong - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a textbook for my class and it is very helpful for the basic study of spiders. It includes information on classification, external and internal structure of spiders, as well as mating, maternal care, and other behavioral studies.
Great illustrations for studying!
