Bibliographic Alerts

 

This list is extracted from the World Spider Catalog. (http://www.wsc.nmbe.ch/) Full texts may be downloaded there.

It is intended purely as a bibliographic alert of recent publications. It cannot be exhaustive as it will be a moving target. However, we will try to update and refresh it constantly. If members would like to list their papers here, please write to the Web Master.

We invite members to help edit a separate section providing bibliographic alerts on subjects outside spider taxonomy and systematics.
