This issue of Wings sheds light on two very different and largely understudied groups of invertebrates. The first article looks at the impacts of oil spills on marine species. The other two essays focus on arachnids; one introduces us to a citizen-science project studying spiders in Colorado, and one to the fascinating order of camel spiders.
