Britain's Spiders is a photographic guide to all 37 of the British families, focussing on spiders that can be identified in the field. Illustrated with a remarkable collection of photographs, it is designed to be accessible to a wide audience, including those new to spider identification. This book pushes the boundaries of field identification for this challenging group by combining information on features that can be seen with the naked eye or a hand lens with additional evidence from webs, egg-sacs, behaviour, phenology, habitats and distributions. Individual accounts cover 395 of Britain's approximately 670 species, with the limitations to field identification clearly explained. As the first photographic field guide to British spiders to be published since 1989, this book fills a major gap in the resources available to everyone with an interest in this fascinating, diverse and important group of animals. * More than 700 stunning photographs * Includes a guide to spider families, based on features recognisable in the field, focussing on body shape and other characteristics, as well as separate guides to webs and egg-sacs * Detailed accounts highlight key identification tips for each genus and species, and include information on status, behaviour and habitats * Features up-to-date distribution maps, and charts showing adult seasonality * Introductory chapters explore the biology of spiders, and where, when and how to find them, including equipment needed in the field * Contains a complete list of the spiders recorded in Britain, indicating the ease of identification as well as rarity and conservation status * Provides information on how to record spiders and make your records count, and guidance on how to take your interest further
