An introduction to Spiders (Araneae)

June 8

Peter Smithers (Bristol). The workshop is aimed at both those who have attended previously
and at any beginners who would like to discover more about this fascinating group of invertebrates.
The workshop will begin with a field session at the on-site nature reserve where a range
of field techniques will be explored and the spiders collected will then be identified to family
or species back inside using the microscopes to identify species down to species level. Anyone
wishing to bring their own spiders along to identify are welcome to do so and a range of
pre-prepared specimens of common families will be available to any beginners or those wishing
to revise with them.
