Talk: Dr. Linda S. Rayor, Cornell University, USA & Australian National University
The Australian huntsman spiders are diverse and fascinating! Learn about their basic biology and their complex social behaviour. Live huntsman spiders of a number of species will be shown. Feel free to bring your huntsman for identification or to donate for further studies into their behaviour.
The talk is part of a free lecture series
Hilltop to Backfence – Celebrating 5 Years of ParkCare on Mount Majura
The lectures cover a range of local environmental issues and explore biodiversity at our doorstep.
