About the Author
Ranil Nanayakkara has made a commendable attempt to provide scientific information on spiders to a broad group of readers ranging from the general public to research students, in a simple and useful manner. It contains interesting information on the morphology of spiders, diverse aspects related to their natural history, and a general description of the different families of spiders occurring in Sri Lanka. It also contains descriptions of 34 relatively common spiders of Sri Lanka, representing the mygalomorphs, web-builders, and non-web building hunters. This publication would certainly help a reader to overcome the general fear and animosity towards spiders, and open their doors to a fascinating experience through observing them with interest.
