Presented are photographs from the field session of the Tropical Amblypygi Project.

The project, headed by Kenneth J. Chapin with assistance from Taylor G. Donaldson, investigates the social organization and natural history of tropical Whip Spiders (Order Amblypygi) via molecular analysis while documenting the species of Arachnida and Myriapoda found in what is perhaps the most biodiverse, ecologically important, and anthropogenically threatened locations on earth: Yasuní, Ecuador.

The field session is being conducted in July and August 2010 at Tiputini Biodiversity Station, and images are posted as they are captured.
