Orb-Weavers: Web Masters of the Spider World
Surprising new research suggests that this seemingly complex design has been repurposed, and may even have been wholly reinvented in different spider groups, over 140 million years of evolution.
Combining specimens from the Harvard collection, stunning photography, and multimedia technology, Orb-Weavers: Masters of the Spider World is a small, special exhibit in the Arthropods Gallery that will examine the evolution of the orb web and explore how capture strategies used by its arachnid builders have shaped web design.
