In contrast, other larger, more dimorphic species in the genus Araneus and species in the genus Argiope
prefer much more open foraging sites (Olive 1980).
Typically, decorating behavior in species of Argiope
is highly variable (Bruce & Herberstein 2005) and web decorations can differ in shape (number and arrangement of zig zag bands), size and frequency (Lubin 1975; Edmunds 1986; Nentwig & Heimer 1987; Schoener & Spiller 1992).
Nevertheless, to make sure that any variation in spectral properties of silks spun by individuals of the same species was minor relative to variations in spectral properties of silks spun by different species, we collected and compared samples of sticky silks spun by five adult Argiope

Genome size and polyploidization in Argiope
and lycosid spiders.
Most of the recent debate regarding silk stabilimentum function has centered on the stabilimenta in the genus Argiope
, but silk stabilimenta have also evolved independently in several other lineages of orb weavers (Scharff and Coddington 1997; Herberstein et al.

In this study, relationship of some web parameters of the spider, Argiope
trifasciata, with its body measurements was investigated.
