It is not exactly a cute animal species but they are often underestimated: spiders. Yet spiders are special creatures. Even if it was only their appearance or their usefulness. In Basisgids Spinnen, the 70 common types are highlighted from all sides. Think of the ordinary house spider, the beautiful spitting spider up to the cross spider that you have probably encountered in your backyard. In contrast to identification guides, the focus of Basisgids Spinnen is more on determining general species than on specific distinctions. And that makes it a good entry model.
