The Peckham Society


The Peckham Society was founded in 1977, as an informal international alliance of amateur and professional naturalists or scientists with an interest in research related to the biology of salticid (jumping) spiders (Arachnida: Araneae: Salticidae).  This society was named in honor of George and Elizabeth Peckham, early pioneers in the study of these remarkable animals.  The major publication of The Peckham Society is called PECKHAMIA, also in honor of George and Elizabeth Peckham.

What's new?

We have started a new section for the posting of salticid records under Regional Collections, beginning with the Salticidae de Colombia (http://www.peckhamia.com/collections).

You can access to Dick Walton's collection of jumping spider videos here (http://www.peckhamia.com/nhs/nhs_videos.php).

Jerzy Prˇszyński's Monograph of Salticidae of the World is now hosted here (http://www.peckhamia.com/salticidae).


Please add your photographs of salticid spiders to the Jumping Spider Commons at FLICKR (http://www.flickr.com/groups/peckhamia/).  If you include the complete scientific name of a spider in your photograph caption, this will automatically appear at Heiko Metzner's Jumping Spiders of the World site (http://www.jumping-spiders.com/).  It is recommended that you release your photographs at this site under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license, and you should also provide your name with each photo for attribution.
