Welcome to our website.

 

 

 

This website is an evolving work-in-progress associated with a major collaborative research project (Global Survey and Inventory of Solifugae) funded by the Biodiversity Surveys and Inventories program of the U.S. National Science Foundation (Grants 0640219 and 0640245).  The site provides information about the biology, taxonomy, and distribution of members of the arachnid order Solifugae, information about ongoing research projects involving solifuges, a list of museum holdings of solifuges, and an extensive bibliography.  The most recent update (March 26, 2009) provides taxonomic summaries for those members of the family Ammotrechidae currently assigned to the subfamily Ammotrechinae.   Please use the buttons to the left to navigate through the site.

Content contributors to this site include Warren Savary (webmaster), Alexander Gromov, Kristie Reddick, Bob Wharton, Lorenzo Prendini, Jason Dunlop, Paula Cushing, and Jack Brookhart, among others.  Photographers and artists are credited in the captions of the individual photographs and illustrations appearing within the site.  A downloadable bibliography is now available on the site, as are .pdf files containing some of the more important literature.

If you have suggestions or contributions for this site, please contact Warren Savary at wsavary@yahoo.com.
