A review of the scarce and threatened spiders (Araneae) of Great Britain: Species Status

Spiders form an important component of British terrestrial ecosystems and as such an awareness of the conservation issues they face is vital. This review assesses the threat of extinction, based on IUCN Red List categories, for the species recorded in Britain and considered eligible for consideration under those IUCN criteria. The intention is that this list can be used as one of the tools for prioritising conservation action, including research where data are lacking or inconclusive.
