Jumping spiders from Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania (Araneae Salticidae)
The results are discussed in relation to the diversity of salticids from different regions of the world and within Africa and to the efficiency of different sampling methods for salticidae.
Abundance and diversity of spiders from the canopy of tropical rainforests with particular reference to Sulawesi, Indonesia
Spiders sampled by knockdown insecticide fogging from the canopies of tropical rainforest sites in Dumoga-Bone National Park, Sulawesi were sampled at altitudes of 210 m, 300 m, 400 m and 1150 m, with Theridiidae being the most species-rich family at all altitudes.
Effects of soil faunal activity and woody shrubs on water infiltration rates in a semi-arid fallow of Senegal
Linyphiidae from rain forests of Southeast Asia (Araneae)
Twenty-seven species of the family Linyphiidae are described from forests in Southeast Asia; 26 of these species are new to science. The following 11 genera are described as new; Prosoponoides,…
Effects of maize-legume intercrops on termite damage to maize, activity of predatory ants and maize yields in Uganda.

Pitfall traps were used to census ground-active spiders in 12 different habitat types in protected savanna biomes in Tanzania and Namibia, with no indication from species accumulation curves that a complete estimate of the spider species richness had been obtained from either area.
Jumping Spiders (Araneae: Salticidae) from Southern Nigeria
The female sex of Evarcha bakorensis, Heliophanus robustus, Phlegra gagnoa and Thyene hesperia is described for the first time and the composition of the salticid fauna of this region of West Africa is discussed and compared to that of other regions of Africa.
Composition of spider communities in the canopies of rainforest trees in Borneo
There was no evidence that taxonomic similarity between tree species influenced the similarity of spider assemblages, and species richness and diversity were markedly higher in the Bornean rainforest than in Sulawesi or Australia.
A revision of the genus Trabaea Simon (Araneae: Lycosidae)
- A. Russell-Smith
The genus Trabaea Simon is revised and two species are described as new, one of which is newly synonymised withtrabaea purcelli Roewer.

Fast disappearance of dead roots suggests that cropping practices that allow conservation of live stumps, such as no-tillage and direct sowing, be promoted wherever possible to ensure soil conservation.
