Allometric patterns in spider webs

In a fresh paper, we explore allometry patterns in spider webs!

Although body size affects almost all aspects of animals' resource use, how behavioral variation scales with body size is understudied. Here, EZ lab investigated behavioral allometry at three phylogenetic scales – broadly across orb-weaving spiders, among a recent radiation of species, and among individuals within species.
