Spiders of Australia by Terence Lindsey

Book Awards

  • Winner of Whitley Award for the Best Children's Book in the Zoological Field 1999.

Book Description

This text is intended as an introduction to the habitats of the spiders of Australia, and to those Australian groups that are particularly common, interesting or significant to humans. Organized into behavioural categories, the five sections cover ancient spiders, roving spiders, "sit-and-wait" spiders, snare makers and web-weavers. The individual species or group entries describe key characteristics such as where they are found, food requirements and behavioural habits, and each entry is accompanied by a colour photograph. A key feature is the "gee whiz" spread which aims to answer many of the most common questions about why spiders do what they do and reveals facts and practical information for the amateur enthusiast.
