Joseph K H Koh
President,
Asian Society of Arachnology.

The Asian Society of Arachnology (ASA) has crossed another milestone in its development with the launching of this website, thanks to the determined efforts of our webmaster Priyanka Hadole.

It has been an arduous journey since the society was born in 2012. We have had four conferences – Pakse (2012), Chiangmai (2014), Amravati (2015) and Chongqinq (2017). Through Facebook and a chat group in WeChat, we have been sharing photographs and videos, and alerting one and another of new papers and publications, and generally keeping in touch and keeping the ASA flame alive.

The ASA should continue to evolve, but in its own unique way. There is no need to imitate others blindly and become a clone of other arachnological societies elsewhere in the world. We are unique because our members come from widely diverse backgrounds, encompassing a vast geographic spread and have very varied requirements – from nature photography, ecological studies, biological control to taxonomy, systematics and molecular phylogeny. We exist because we aim to cater for the diverse needs of our membership – from students, teachers, passionate hobbyists, to professional museum scientists and academic researchers interested in Asian spiders and other arachnids.
