Tarantula Keeper's Guide by Schultz & Schultz. I think MrD has a link about it on the site.

It gives you some good info without being overwhelming. Unfortunately, the scientific names change and the info may not be up to date.

Hi Nathan. Just run a search on Google.com for phrases like "tarantula suborder" or "arachnid order" etc. and you'll find a ton of info.

Nathan, spidertal.net has a lot of that info. So do pages like e-spiderworld.com and birdspiders.com
