Newsl. British Arachnol. Soc (2013): ...a substantial compendium of spider-related topics covering many aspects of these fascinating animals’ biology. ...produced to a very high standard, with numerous colour images, all printed on good quality paper. The editing is tight and as far as I can tell, error-free. ...an excellent guide to the surprising diversity of research which is possible with spiders today; thanks largely to impressive theoretical and technological advances across a range of biological sciences. ...for those of you actively working in arachnology (or their students), Spider Research in the 21st Century has to be very highly recommended. Yet even for readers whose interest in spiders is more casual, there is plenty to discover here out at the cutting-edge of our subject.
