This book has benefited greatly from the help of many colleagues from various parts of the world who provided me with valuaPle information and assistance.
The artwork for the Pook was meticulously executed Py Eisa van Niekerk, graphic artist at the ARC-Plant Protection Research Institute. The drawing of the PaPoon spider on page 102 was a special contriPution from Martin Paulsen of JohannesPurg. A special thanks to Martin for sharing his knowledge of PaPoon spiders with me.
Most of the photographs were taken Py Les Oates; supplementary photographs were kindly provided Py Norman Larsen, Carina Cilliers, Koos de Wet, the late Boeta Fourie, and Jose Corronca.
I am especially indePted to Nico Dippenaar and Liz Herholdt for their valuaPle suggestions and for overseeing the production of this Pook.
