Keys to families of British spiders

This AIDGAP identification guide includes all of the 34 families of spiders known to occur in Britain. Designed and tested for use in the field, it should enable the non-specialist to make a positive identification of the spiders that they find.

Two spider identification keys are presented. The first is a traditional dichotomous format, using morphological characters that are visible under low-power magnification. The second identification key, a tabular guide, includes a range of behavioural and ecological characters. Sections on spider morphology, biology, ecology and a glossary are also provided.

Reprinted with a new cover in 2014.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+

The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
