  • The effects of prey capture on web site tenacity and survivorship of Argiope trifasciat a (Araneae, Araneidae) were studied in two old field habitats in southwestern Ohio . Adult females wer e studied in habitats dominated by grass or thistle plants . In manipulation plots, we added two crickets t o the webs of approximately half the spiders . We were able to quantify differences in prey intake usin g morphological measurements that changed with food consumption . The spiders that did not… CONTINUE READING
