Towards a standardized and optimized protocol for rapid biodiversity assessments: spider species richness and assemblage composition in two savanna vegetation types
(South African Journals, 2010-10)
A semi-quantitative inventory of spider diversity was done in the Blouberg Nature Reserve (BNR) and Western Soutpansberg Conservancy (WSC) situated in the Savanna Biome of the Limpopo Province, South Africa. Two hundred ...
Micro-scale heterogeneity of spiders (Arachnida: Araneae) in the Soutpansberg, South Africa: a comparative survey and inventory in representative habitats
Coarse-scale studies that focus on species distributions and richness neglects heterogeneity that may be present at finer scales. Studies of arthropod assemblage structure at fine (1 x 1 km) scales are rare, but important, ...
The South African National Red List of spiders: patterns, threats, and conservation
Triage in conservation biology necessitates the prioritization of species and ecosystems for conservation. Although highly diverse, ecologically important, and charismatic, spiders are rarely considered. With 2,253 known ...
