An Identification Manual, Second Edition
Darrell Ubick, Pierre Paquin, Paula Cushing & Vince Roth, editors

2017, 431 pages, 1,400+ illustrations. The 2nd edition of this beautifully illustrated guide to the spiders of North America, north of Mexico, provides updated keys and information about this important part of North American fauna. It is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in spider diversity or identification. The updated edition provides more than 1,400 illustrations, keys to the genera in 71 spider families and more than 600 genera.

The manual contains 76 chapters and information including:
  • An introduction to spider morphology, natural history, collecting techniques, and preservation methods
  • An overview of the current status and most recent developments in spider phylogeny and evolutionary history
  • Taxonomic changes since the first edition was published in every chapter
  • An etymological dictionary explaining the derivation of the names of spider genera and families
  • A well-illustrated glossary
  • A pronunciation guide to the names of common taxa
  • A complete bibliography

This is the first completely revised version of the manual since its original publication in 2005. It is not a photo-ID guide to spiders; it is intended to aid in accurate identification by providing details of spider morphology/anatomy. A guide to morphology used in classification is provided in the introduction. Information on spider biology and identification makes this manual especially suitable for both amateur naturalists and professional arachnologists.

Spiral bound; 8-1/2 x 11.
