Many studies that evaluate rehabilitation make use of invertebrate bioindicators. Invertebrates,
especially ants, make useful indicators as they are sensitive to environmental change. We
compared ant assemblages in ...
1. Charismatic invertebrates are popular subjects for citizen science but it is harder to engage the public in research on animals that are perceived as dangerous. Many successful citizen science projects exist in North ...

and are critical to ecosystem function. However, their inclusion in biodiversity monitoring
and conservation planning and ...

Three new species of Stasimopus Simon, 1892, are described from the Gauteng and North
West provinces of South Africa. They are readily distinguished from all other known Stasimopus
species by the presence of spinules in ...

Inventories of invertebrate species are produced by a number of workers for protected areas
in South Africa. The value of these inventories for the protected area management process
was investigated using a questionnaire ...

During 2015 and 2016 several baboon spider specimens (Araneae: Theraphosidae) were collected in central
Angola during surveys undertaken for the Okavango Wilderness Project. These collections represent
range and habitat ...
Trapdoor spiders are challenging to sample using active searching methods because of their cryptic burrowing behavior. This poses problems for ecological studies and for gathering the data needed for conservation assessments. ...
