Abstract:

As experimental organisms, spiders offer ecologists a unique opportunity to examine the concept of the ecological community and the role which field experimentation can play in evaluating theories of population and community ecology. In this book, David Wise provides a balanced critique of field experiments designed to uncover details of spider ecology, with the dual aim of clarifying the ecology of these fascinating organisms and providing insight into the advantages and challenges of performing field experiments with a predator ubiquitous in terrestrial ecosystems.

After a brief introduction to spider biology, the author considers the following topics in depth: food limitation; competitionist views of spider communities; the competitionist paradigm; interspecific and intraspecific competition; effects of abiotic factors and natural enemies on population density; the impact of spiders on insect populations; the effect of the physical structure of the habitat on spider populations; and experimental evidence for indirect effects in the ecological webs of spiders. This book will be an essential reference for all ecologists wishing to learn more about the ecology of a major terrestrial predator and the use of field experimentation as a powerful technique to test ecological hypotheses.
