Summary

Ground-dwelling spider communities of nine distinct habitat types were sampled within the riparian corridor of lower Big Beaver Creek, North Cascades National Park Service Complex during the snow-free seasons of 1996 and 1997. This study was part of a comprehensive project to begin development of protocols for the assessment of biological integrity in the Park Complex.

Purpose

To document occurrence, life history information, and information concerning taxonomy of species from Arachnida (Araneae).Specific objectives were to document the species, relative abundance, and habitat associations of ground-dwelling spider communities. Spiders represent a diverse and functionally important group of arthropods. They are frequently the dominant predators in arthropod communities. The assessment of their status can provide much information useful in monitoring the integrity of biotic communities.
