Macroecological patterns of spider species richness across Europe
It is concluded that these first continental wide analyses grasp the overall pattern in spider species richness of Europe quite well, although some of the observed patterns are not directly causal. Expand
Abundant and rare spiders on tree trunks in German forests (Arachnida, Araneae)
The spider fauna active on the bark of trees in forests on eight sites in different regions in Germany was investigated and the 20 most abundant species are listed and characterised in detail. Expand
