Southeast Asian pholcid spiders: diversity and phylogenetic relationships and multiple convergent shifts among microhabitats

Bernhard A Huber
Pholcid spiders are among the most diverse spider families but their mainly tropical distribution and lack of specialists have long hampered knowledge about the group. A concentrated effort over the last 15 years has dramatically improved the situation but Southeast Asian taxa remain a major gap of knowledge. The present project aims at closing this gap and focuses, apart from the taxonomy, on three major questions: (1) how do Southeast Asian taxa fit into the...

The majority of specimens is wet material preserved in ethanol, but...

Automatic accoustic Monitoring and Inventoring of BIODiversity

AMIBIO Consortium
Animals use acoustic vocalisation as a very efficient means of communication because the sound does not require visual contact between emitter and receiver, it can travel over long distances and can carry the information content under low visibility conditions. Animals use sound for mate attraction, territorial defence and for early warning of other members of the species of the presence of dangerous predators. Acoustic surveying can be used for rapid assessment programmes (RAP), which quickly...
