Spider Families of the World and their Spinnerets

Arachnologists' Handbook, Second edition
By Russell-Smith, A., Smith, H. & Oxford, G. (eds.)
British Arachnological Society, 2015
An excellent handbook for those interested in studying, collecting, keeping spiders, etc.

The fauna and color plate sections pertain to the more commonly encountered British spiders, but many of the covered families, genera, and even species, occur in North America as well.

The second half of the handbook is useful for anyone interested in spiders anywhere. Informative sections regarding collecting, captivity, photography, safety, and more, are included.
