Just this morning, I saw another spider on the floor that turned out to be a piece of lint.  :-[

Instead of using his flamethrower, he pulled out his camera??  There is something very wrong with that man.

"We now have the longest time series of spiders collected the Arctic. The large amount of data allows us to show how small animals in the Arctic change their life history in response to climate change," says Toke T. Høye.

The long time series tells the researchers that the earlier the snow disappears from the ground, the greater the proportion of spiders that can produce a second clutch of offspring.

"These changes in the life history have not been seen earlier and evidence suggests that the phenomenon plays an important role for Arctic insects and spiders," Toke T. Høye says.

The researchers see the spiders' response to climate change as an ability to adapt to the new conditions.

Yeah, I read that.  Just what this world needs -- even more spiders.  :hide:
