In: The behavioral ecology of amblypygids. by Kenneth J. Chapin & Eileen A. Hebets pp. 1–14. "Amblypygids have remarkable neuroanatomy and sensory biology: curious conspecific interactions ranging from cannibalism and territoriality to extended parental care and sociality; and a litany of community interactions that make them an important component of the ecosystems in which they occur."
