Abstract: Spiders which are abundant in Chinese tea plantations are the most important species of natural enemy for controlling the populations of many pests. Spider ecology in tea gardens of china was corresponding to the investigation on the development of pest control by spiders. The spider taxa and the dynamics on major pests population in tea gardens, community diversity of spiders, the influences of cultivation and methods of management to the community diversity, the impact of ecological factors on the spider, predatory behavior ecology and chemical ecology of spider were briefly reviewed in this paper. Furthermore, the new development of spider ecology in tea gardens of china in recent years was also summarized. Chemical ecology of spider would be an important aspect on the research and development of biological control in tea garden in future.

Key words: Chinese tea garden, spider ecology, chemical ecology of spider, biological control
