  • SummaryPrevious research by many investigators has demonstrated food limitation in both web-building and wandering spiders. Field experiments have tested for exploitative competition for prey in web-building, but not wandering species. As a first step to examining the question of whether spiders without webs exhibit exploitative competition, we manipulated densities of young stages of a common wolf spider, Schizocos ocreata, and measured (1) spider growth rate and (2) numbers of Collembola, a… CONTINUE READING
