Population structure in a saproxylic funnelweb spider (Hexathelidae: Hadronyche ) along a forested rainfall gradient

Woodman, James; Ash, Julian; Rowell, David M

Description

We present research undertaken at Tallaganda State Forest, Australia, describing how current climatic conditions impact upon the saproxylic (decaying wood) habitat and the relationship between this habitat and the demography and morphology of a saproxylic funnelweb spider (Hadronyche sp.). Climatic data support a north-south habitat cline and, to a lesser extent, a short-range, aspect-driven habitat cline. Rainfall and log moisture content increased with latitude through the forest, and aspect...[Show more]
