Ground spider variability in a dry meadow


Abstract: The present study is focused on the ground spider population of a dry meadow located in Brescia Prealps (Lombardy) in proximity to a crowded and industrialized city and hence subjected to strong anthropogenic impact. Preliminary results obtained from pitfall samplings from April to August 2010 are reported. More than 160 spiders have been captured and 33 taxa belonging to 12 families identified (Amaurobiidae, Corinnidae, Dysderidae, Gnaphosidae, Linyphiidae, Lycosidae, Philodromidae, Pisauridae, Salticidae, Theridiidae, Thomisidae, and Zodariidae).
