SPIDERS: LIFESTYLES OF THE SMALL AND HAIRY

Description

Spiders have been around for about 400 million years. They have evolved some very clever ways of surviving almost everywhere on Earth from high in the Himalayas to under the sea. Some have the cunning of a small mammal, others go fishing and some lure male moths to their doom with an irresistible moth perfume. Meet some of the world’s most charming predators. Dr Simon Pollard has a PHD in Zoology and is Adjunct Professor of Science Communication at the University of Canterbury.
