In both the genus Argiope and the genus Nephila, female size varies enormously among species, whereas male size is relatively constant.
Web decorations" (first mentioned as such by McCook 1889, but also called "stabilimenta" by Simon 1895 and many modern authors) in the araneid genus Argiope consist of numerous flimsy aciniform silk threads (Peters 1993), mostly arranged in zig zag shaped bands (Bruce 2006).

In fact, Curtis & Carrel (2000) believed their paper on excretion behavior by garden spiders Argiope aurantia Lucas 1833 (Araneidae) (referred to as defecation behavior by the authors) to be the first explicit study of its sort on a spider, although Tietjen (1980) reported on the nonrandom distribution of excreta under laboratory conditions in Mallos gregalis (Simon 1909) (Dictynidae).
My hypothesis was that winter burns conducted before Argiope spiderlings disperse long distances from the maternal egg sacs by ballooning in Apr and May (Tolbert 1977; Anderson 1978; Horton & Wise 1983) should have little if any effect on the resultant density of adult female spiders in the fall, whereas burns performed in summer after spiders have stopped ballooning might be disastrous for local Argiope populations.
