The effect of prey availability on spider assemblages on European black pine (Pinus nigra) bark: Spatial patterns and guild structure
Both habitat structural complexity and prey availability can influence the density and diversity of spider as- semblages. We studied whether prey availability affects spider assemblages living on theExpand

Scale-dependent dispersal and distribution patterns of spiders in agricultural systems: A review
A conceptual framework is presented for the study of the factors affecting the distribution, dispersal and abundance of spiders in agricultural systems. It is useful to consider how factors operateExpand

Spiders are not less diverse in small and isolated grasslands, but less diverse in overgrazed grasslands: A field study (East Hungary, Nyirseg)
The effects of size, isolation and grazing intensity on spider assemblages were studied in the fragments of sandy grasslands (East Hungary, Nyirseg). Spiders were sampled by sweep-netting at eightExpand

Intensive grazing opens spider assemblage to invasion by disturbance-tolerant species
Abstract Grazing is an established conservation tool for maintaining grassland habitats and under some circumstances may enrich arthropod assemblages. However, even if enrichment occurs, it is notExpand

Large and least isolated fragments preserve habitat specialist spiders best in dry sandy grasslands in Hungary
The role of fragment size, isolation and habitat diversity in the conservation of spider assemblages living in fragmented landscape were studied in dry sandy grasslands (East Hungary, Nyírség).Expand

In stable, unmanaged grasslands local factors are more important than landscape-level factors in shaping spider assemblages
Previous studies reported that landscape-level factors are vital to support diversity of spiders in strongly modified arable lands and disturbed habitats such as managed semi-natural grasslands.Expand

The effect of exposition time and temperature on spiders (Araneae) overwintering on the bark of black pine (Pinus nigra)
The effect of exposition time (time between the installation of traps and the collection of spiders) and autumn air temperature on spiders overwintering on tree bark was studied in a planted blackExpand
