Australians have a love-hate relationship with spiders. Some spiders, such as the dangerous Redback and the Sydney Funnelweb, inspire fear. Yet Peacock Spiders, whose male waves its legs and spreads a colourful fan in a courtship dance, have won rapturous appreciation worldwide.
A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia uses photographs of living animals to help people identify many of the spiders they may encounter. Featuring over 1300 colour photographs, it is the most comprehensive account of Australian spiders ever published. With more than two-thirds of Australian spiders yet to be scientifically described, this book sets the scene for future explorations of our extraordinary Australian fauna.
A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia will be enjoyed by naturalists and anyone with an interest in learning more about Australia's incredible arachnids.
