Clicking on the link Volker provided describes it.

This book covers many aspects of the biology of spiders including morphology, physiology, neurobiology, ecology, evolution, classification, natural history, and behavior. The physiology of all major systems are covered (integument, digestion, excretion and osmoregulation, neurophysiology, respiration and metabolism, circulation and hemolymph), as well as the biochemistry of spider silk and venom. Behavioral topics include, but are not limited to, foraging, dispersal, antipredator tactics, nest and web construction, communication, and social interactions. Topics on physiological ecology, habitat selection, diet composition, and community ecology are also addressed.
Additional ttopics include spider systematics and evolution, as well as the role of spiders in mythology and literature.

Expensive for a paperback
Is it worth buying Volker?
Hi Lelle,

I don't know. I've received the information that this book is available from the ISA, but I don't possess it. But because of the author, I think that it should be a good book.

Cheers, Volker

Hi Nerri,

That was likely the hardcover edition. The hardcover from Amazon and few other places is running close to $200.

WalMart is the cheapest pre-order I've seen, at around $93 for the paperback.
