This book surveys the ways in which land dwelling arthropods deal with water in terrestrial environments. From scorpion to beetle and spider to hover fly, water is a crucial component of activity. This new synthesis and integration of recent research summarizes the ways water is managed by these diverse terrestrial invertebrates. The mechanisms, processes and structures employed by arthropods represent evolutionary innovations and compromises. Those fascinated by the limitations and opportunities represented by terrestrial lifestyles will want this new book.
