Abstract

Dextro-amphetamine and diazepam were administered orally to the spider Araneus diadematus. Thread connections from the spider's orb web were examined by photomicroscopy. Amphetamine altered fine structure but diazepam did not. Results are discussed in terms of disturbed spinning behavior.
