The aerial spider fauna of the Mixed Mesophytic forest community was more abundant and more varied than those of the Mixed Oak and Chestnut Oak forest communities studied although all were similar in composition. A study of the leaf litter showed the spider populations to be similar in numbers and species present in all three forest communities. The aerial fauna of the Old Field community studied was as abundant, but less varied than the Mixed Mesophytic. The Old Field community fauna was distinct from that of the forest communities.
