Spiders are sensible towards the external temperature known ectothermic. The study observed the richness of spiders’ species at Narmada riverside habitat, the observation data mainly collected from arboreal and ground habitat included rocks and grass land. This gives rise enormous results to behavioral characteristic of spiders. The major difference found in richness of spider fauna during the three prime seasons in Gujarat. The major families are found abundant in monsoon and winter seasons during July to March. The Salticidae and Gnaphosidae are become low populated during late winter. The two families Araneidae and Lycosidae are found sustained in the summer season during April to June.
