Abstract
Reviews the variety of trace fossils produced by terrestrial and freshwater arthropods, without examining the entire spectrum of such structures, and demonstrates their utility in palaeobiological studies. The trace-producing groups considered are those more 'typical' of non-marine than marine environments (e.g. spiders, myriapods and, especially, insects). Continental arthropod traces are considered within the following categories: organism-sediment interactions (e.g. trackways and burrows); organism-organism interactions, particularly plant-arthropod interactions (e.g. bored wood and leaf mines); and aedificichnia, structures constructed in full relief from inorganic raw material (e.g. mud-daubing wasp nests and caddisfly cases)....
