SUBSOCIALITY IN HELVIBIS THORELLI KEYSERLING 1884 (ARANEAE, THERIDIIDAE, THERIDIINAE) FROM FRENCH GUIANA
TLDR
Findings support this prediction and have important implications for comparative studies as they add another independent observation of social behavior: current phylogenetic knowledge implies subsociality evolved independently in each of theridiid genera.
Spider web guilds in cacao agroforestry – comparing tree, plot and landscape‐scale management
TLDR
Results suggest spider web density could be increased by pruning of cacao trees while keeping shade trees at high density in cacao plots, and emphasize the need to consider scale dependency of crop management and web-guild-specific responses that may be related to different functional roles of spiders as a high-density predator group in agroforestry.
Construction and function of the web of Tidarren sisyphoides (Araneae: Theridiidae)
TLDR
The dome-shaped sheet and upper tangle comprise the functional trap of the web, while the horizontal sheet apparently plays only a little role in prey capture.
