Abstract

Changes in the dynamic density of herpetobiont arachnids and the ratio of spider life forms have been studied in southern taiga forests transformed under the impact of emissions from a copper smelter. Along the pollution gradient, the dynamic density of spiders decreases; web-spinning spiders are replaced by ambush spiders, since the abundance of families Lycosidae and Gnaphosidae increases while that of the family Linyphiidae decreases; and spatial variation in the abundance of arachnids increases. One harvestmen family (Nemastomatidae) completely disappears near the copper smelter.
