Spiders are beautiful and interesting animals which play important roles in all ecosystems from seashore to mountain top. If you are keen to learn more about the identification and ecology of spiders then this is the course for you. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more advanced student of spiders then this week long course will provide you with the opportunity to develop your knowledge at a pace which suits you, taking advantage of the excellent lab facilities at Kindrogan and the diverse local habitats of Perthshire.
Through a mixture of talks, lab sessions and fieldwork you will learn how to find spiders in their habitats; identify them reliably and understand their role in the ecosystem. Guidance will be provided for those interested in becoming involved in spider recroding and there will be opportunities to discuss their conservation.
Mike Davidson is an amateur naturalist with a particular interest in invertebrate distribution, ecology and conservation. He is the area organiser for the British Arachnological Society Spider Recording Scheme in N.E. Scotland.
