Filling a major gap in the natural history of Australia 'A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia' uses photographs of living animals to help people identify many of the spiders they encounter. Covers all the known families of Australian spiders with stunning macro-photography revealing fascinating details not discernible to the naked eye. Containing the most uptodate taxonomic information this is the most comprehensive account of Australian spiders ever published.

Robert Whyte is an honorary researcher in arachnology at the Queensland Museum, having developed an interest in spiders with the encouragement of arachnologist Robert Raven. He has participated in five Bush Blitz bio-discovery expeditions in remote parts of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland. He is an accomplished editor, author and journalist, with skills in photography and publication design.

Greg Anderson is a biomedical research scientist and heads the Chronic Disorders Program at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane. He has been interested in spiders since his early life in Newcastle and has travelled extensively around Australia and other parts of the world studying and photographing spiders. He has a particular interest in Comb-footed spiders.
