520    The 2nd edition of this beautifully illustrated guide to 
       the spiders of North America, north of Mexico, provides 
       completely updated keys and information about this 
       important part of North American fauna. This is an 
       indispensable reference for anyone interested in spider 
       diversity or identification. This updated edition provides
       more than 1,400 illustrations and keys to the genera in 71
       spider families. Over 600 genera are included. Taxonomic 
       changes since the publication of the 1st edition in 2005 
       are reflected in every chapter. The manual includes 76 
       chapters and a wealth of information including an 
       introduction to spider morphology, natural history, 
       collecting techniques and preservation methods; an 
       overview of the current status and most recent 
       developments in spider phylogeny and evolutionary history;
       a key to the families of spiders found in North America, 
       north of Mexico; keys to the genera in each of these 
       families; an etymological dictionary explaining the 
       derivation of the names of spider genera and families; a 
       well-illustrated glossary; a pronunciation guide to the 
       names of common taxa; and a complete bibliography. This is
       the first completely revised version of the manual since 
       its original publication in 2005. Note that this is not a 
       photo-ID guide to spiders; it is intended to aid in 
       accurate identification and to do this one must become 
       familiar with some of the details of spider morphology/
       anatomy. To aid in this task, a guide to morphology used 
       in classification is provided in the introduction. The 
       information on spider biology and identification make this
       manual especially suitable for both amateur naturalists 
       and professional arachnologists. Over 40 arachnologists, 
       all experts in their groups, contributed to this
