Example text

He describes the slight increase in average number of radii (from 22 to 29) around the third molting. For the rest of the spider's life the average number remained relatively constant. His counts varied between 10 and 40 radii in the webs of young spiders as compared to between 19 and 41 in adult webs. PETERS (1953) measured mesh size between two radii and two turns of the provisional spiral, in young and adult Araneus diadematus webs. He found that there was a change in the ratio of body size/mesh size during the life time of a spider.

Again as far as we know there is no correlation found with any known parameter and the appearance of these web characteristics. It is even observed that a spider which has already built a hatched band, can build a web without that later. Changes of Web Pattern with Changes in Body Weight 49 The influence of body weight on web characteristics can be demonstrated by attaching weights to spiders at certain times of life. This is the subject of the discussion in the next section. C. Changes of Web Pattern with Changes in Body Weight MAYER (1953) was, as far as we know, the first to attach a weight to the body of Araneus diadematus Cl.

PETERS (1953) measured mesh size between two radii and two turns of the provisional spiral, in young and adult Araneus diadematus webs. He found that there was a change in the ratio of body size/mesh size during the life time of a spider. This led him to the conclusion that body size does not determine mesh size. WITT and BAUM (1960) raised Araneus diadematus C1. from an egg cocoon in the laboratory. Spiders were left together in a glass jar until they began to attack each other. At that time they were put into individual jars and supplied with three and one-half by five em cardboard frames.
