Handbook of Nature Study: Invertebrates

by Anna B. Comstock

Description: A variety of the other invertebrates that children are likely to come in contact with are examined in section eight of Handbook of Nature Study. First come two that are intimately associated with the land: the garden snail and the earthworm. Next the crayfish, an inhabitant of still water in brooks and ponds, is considered. Lastly, creatures of the air, daddy long-legs and spiders, are treated in greater depth. The reader learns both how spiders care for their eggs and how they spin their webs. Three different webs are described in detail: funnel webs, orb webs, and filmy domes.
