Britain's Spiders: A Field Guide
Lawrence Bee, Geoff Oxford & Helen Smith
Available from 19 May 2017. A photographic guide to all 37 of the British families, focussing on spiders that can be identified in the field. Illustrated with a remarkable collection of photographs, it is designed to be accessible to a wide audience, including those new to spider identification.
This book pushes the boundaries of field identification for this challenging group by combining information on features that can be seen with the naked eye or a hand lens with additional evidence from webs, egg-sacs, behaviour, phenology, habitats and distributions. Individual accounts cover 390 of Britain's approximately 660 species, with the limitations to field id explained.
The first photographic field guide to British spiders to be published since 1989, this book will fill a major gap in the resources available to everyone with an interest in this fascinating, diverse and important group of animals. c384 pages.
