Preview of Borneo Spiders: A Photographic Field Guide

5 May 2017

It gives me great pleasure to announce the upcoming Borneo Spiders: A Photographic Guide. I had been working on this book for over 2 years, partnering with the pioneer in Southeast Asian spider research – Joseph K H Koh.

Borneo Spiders: A Photographic Guide is built on the foundation of the highly popular series of guidebooks on Bornean Spiders, furnished with high quality macro-photographs, up-to-date taxonomic revisions, new distribution records, and many more pages dedicated to spiders found in Borneo. Over 540 species of spiders are illustrated with useful field identification tips, together with easy-to-understand notes on their natural history.

This book will be an indispensable reference for students and teachers engaged in ecological and biodiversity studies, nature lovers and macro-photographers in Southeast Asia. This will surely become a travelling companion of eco-tourists and their guides in Borneo, and a significant acquisition of the libraries of professional arachnologists worldwide.

Limited copies available!
