Spider diversity monitoring in the Los Angeles Area.

Los Angeles Spider Survey (LASS)

Los Angeles is an important international port, new species of spiders are always being accidentally introduced, and some are establishing breeding populations. We need your help to find out what spiders are becoming established so we can understand what impacts they may be having on our native spiders. More information on this project can be found at:
